Achieving Results

Achieving Results is one of the six core skills for Managers and Supporters in Scouting.


  • Manage projects and development plans appropriately: 
    • Satisfactorily complete projects for which they are responsible.
    • Ensure that all the initiatives in local Scouting are managed appropriately.
    • Monitor and review the progress that people who report to them are making against their targets and development plans.
  • Promote Scouting: 
    • With the local Trustee Board and others ensure that Scouting is promoted locally.
    • Build up an understanding of the young people in your local area and ensure that Scouting is promoted effectively to them, including focusing on their needs and expectations.
  • Satisfactorily resolve problems and issues raised by adult members, youth members and by parents or carers of youth members.  
  • Continually improve the performance of all elements of local Scouting.
