The Magic Wand of Training (Copied from the BSA’s Training Site: Scouting.org > Volunteer > 培训 > 培训)
If you had a magic wand, would you use it to make the Scouting program better and more fun for youth so they stayed in Scouting longer, so it had a larger impact on their lives? What if the same magic wand made leadership roles easier, more rewarding, and led to better retention among adult leaders? Would using that magic wand be a top priority?
很好, such a magic wand does exist—in the form of the learning programs for leaders in the Boy Scouts of America.
Common sense tells us that training is important, and research shows the importance of trained leaders. 一个受过训练的领导者是知识渊博和正在执行的角色更有信心. 受过训练的领导者知识和拾起身边的人的信心. 受过训练的领导人影响节目的质量, 领导人任期, 青年任期, 安全, 和一大堆更多. 一个受过训练的领导者更好地准备使侦查程序所有它可以是!
This document is published by the BSA and is updated periodically. It lists the BSA training courses that are required in order for a leader to be considered “训练” and eligible to wear the “训练” strip for his or her current 位置. Some Scouting positions require only the position-specific training (classroom or online). Other positions require live training courses in a classroom setting, and many require additional training in an overnight camping setting. When determining what training is required for a specific Scouting position, be sure to look for the most recent iteration of this document.
问题: When is a Scout leader “fully 训练”? 答案: 很好, to be honest . . . 永远不会!
According to an article titled “Fully Trained,” published in the the Fall 2014/Winter 2015 版的 Training Times, 页 1, a leader can always learn new things by attending or teaching a training course. This very short and to-the-point article is copied below:
We often fall into the trap of calling a Scouter “fully trained” when he or she completes “basic” 培训 [即. leader position-specific training]. It leads some to think that they have done all of the training they can do. 答案是肯定的, no person is ever “fully trained.” Even the most tenured Scouter can learn something by attending or instructing a course.
The Five Levels of the BSA Training Continuum discussed in the 领袖培训指南 provide a wealth of opportunities for a progression of learning for all of us to learn more about program, 领导, and other important skills. Do not fall into the trap of using the term “fully trained.”
还, keep in mind that each of us must repeat Youth Protection training (the standard YP course and/or Venturing Youth Protection training) every two years. 此外, several other BSA training courses expire after two years (天气灾害, 安全游泳防御, 海上安全, and Climb on Safely).
