OLD TO NEW SCHEME ‘CROSS OVER’ POINTS

There are no direct correlations between the outgoing ‘Stages’ Scheme and the incoming Scheme. However, to ensure Scouters can constructively continue to engage with their training journey, they can cross from the old scheme into the new scheme as indicate in the table below. It is extremely important to remember that any training completed to date remains valid and any Scouter transferring to the new scheme will be accredited for all training completed.

If you have attained your Woodbadge Beads prior to 2016, this achievement will of course remain valid and there will be no requirement for you to under take the Woodbadge Trail in the new scheme. However, you may choose and are very welcome to under take any learning experience as part of your approach to Continuing your Journey (in training).

Scouters who are in Scout Groups prior to 2016 and have completed Stages 1 and 2 of the outgoing Scheme will continue to be involved with the youth members in their Scout Group as they currently do.

From January 2016, Scouting Ireland will require all new adults to complete the full ‘This is Scouting’ element of the Training Scheme and successfully complete the membership application process (which includes satisfactory completion of the Garda Vetting process) prior to direct work with, or access to our youth members.

It should be noted that Scouters who have completed Stages 1 to 3 in the current scheme, have the added opportunity to continue on their journey and complete their training to Stage 6 during 2016 (please see the table below).

Transitioning from the outgoing Stages Scheme

If you are a registered Programme Scouter transitioning from our outgoing 'Stages' training scheme to the new scheme, you should note that there are no direct correlations between the outgoing ‘Stages’ Scheme and the incoming Scheme. 

However, to ensure Scouters can constructively continue to engage with their training journey, they can cross from the old scheme into the new scheme at specific points.  It is extremely important to remember that any training completed to date remains valid and any Scouter transferring to the new scheme will be accredited for all training completed.
