Time: 09:00 - 16:00
Learn how to plan trips and ensure the safety of your girls away from home

The Going Away With scheme is open to members who have completed the leadership qualification and currently hold an active role as a leader, commissioner or adviser.

The first four modules equip leaders with the Going Away With licence. This qualifies you to take girls away overnight or for two nights or more if programme, catering and facilities are already provided. Modules 1 to 4 cover:

planning a successful residential event
administration of a residential event
managing safety and security away from home
making health and first aid arrangements

Additional modules
Once you have the basic licence, you can pick up additional modules depending on the responsibility you will have during a residential event. You will only ever need these additional modules if you are going away for two nights or more.

Module 5 - organise the catering arrangements
Module 6 - coordinate a programme of activities for participants
Module 7 - organise the care and maintenance of facilities
Module 8 - organise the care and maintenance of camping equipment.

The Going Away With scheme is practically assessed, so you will need to plan and run residential trips with girls and provide evidence of your work. You will be assigned a Mentor, who will support you along the way and assess you before, during and after each event.
