"Scout Leader Skills" is a tool that allows Scout leaders to take stock of the skills they have acquired as Scout leaders. This tool may even make them want to develop themselves fully: Baden-Powell called it “duty to self” (or the personal principle).
For two years, Les Scouts, one of the French-speaking National Scout Associations in Belgium, has worked towards the creation of an on-line tool called "Scout Leader Skills" for leaders and managers. It is a tool to recognise and validate the skills acquired as a scout leader or manager. This project, which began in April 2012, was developed in collaboration with one of the Dutch-speaking associations in Belgium, the Scouts en Gidsen Vlaanderen, where leaders and managers also benefit from "Scout Leader Skills", and with scientific expertise from two universities. The project is fully in line with the current European trend of evaluation and validation of skills.
