Scouts is all about ‘learning by doing’, and Scouting’s members are learning every day. The skills learnt help to develop active citizens who contribute to society and help to create a better world. Scouts Australia also facilitates a comprehensive formal training framework for its youth members and adult leaders.

Adventurous Activities

While all youth members participate and learn about adventurous activities, Venturer Scouts, Rover Scouts and Adult Leaders can participate in specific adventurous activities programs.


Through Scouts Australia Institute of Training (SAIT) (RTO No. 5443), Scouts Australia offers members the opportunity to earn nationally recognised qualifications from Certificate II up to Advanced Diploma level.  Qualifications can be earned in Business, Leadership and Management, Volunteering, Creative Industries and Outdoor Leadership.

Adult Training

Like their counterparts around the world, Scouts Australia’s Adult Leaders are trained through the Woodbadge Training Program which conforms to the requirements of the World Organisation of the Scout Movement.
