Greetings from the Singapore Scout Association.
The National Training Team is organising the following courses under the Adult Leader
Training Scheme (ALTS):
- Certificate in Applied Outdoor Education (CAOE) Part 1 and Part 2
- Advanced Certificate in Applied Outdoor Education (ACAOE)
- Diploma in Applied Outdoor Education (DipAOE)
These courses aim to prepare leaders to confidently carry out their responsibilities in their appointment as Scout Leaders. Upon completion of the courses, leaders will be equipped with the knowledge and skills required to implement the intended youth programme that would meet the needs and interests of their Scouts.
The National Training Team is also organising a new course, named Youth Education and Scouting (YEAS), with the Ministry of Education (MOE) under the Character & Citizenship Education (CCE2021) for all programme.
Apart from these courses, the National Training Team will also be providing support to all leaders via the Monthly Leaders Forum with a different topic being of focus each month. At the Forum, Leaders can discuss their thoughts and ideas with one another as well as the challenges they face when running their scout units. Dates for the Forum can be found in the Training Calendar 2022. The Forum would be held via zoom every month.
For more information, please refer to the Training Calendar 2022 appended for course schedules and closing dates.
Additionally, Adult Leaders can access the Scout Membership Portal via https://intranet8.scout.org.sg/Content to register for adult leader training and view the available courses.

The purpose of the Monthly Leaders Forum is to be a platform for leaders to discuss and share ideas to better deliver Scouting at unit level. Feedback will be sought from participants to better understand the challenges faces at the unit level.
Through such conversations, more meeting ideas, new activity plans, and techniques of engaging Scouts through their patrols/sixes can be discovered. The topics can be on Scouting fundamentals, or on the challenges faced by unit leaders when running Scout units.
Topics may change from time to time based on demand and feedback from participants.
Format: Online: Zoom (link will be provided 1-2 days before the session) Sharings done by unit leaders
