Wood Badge

When an adult (relevant here for both adult Leaders and Rover Scouts) achieves their Wood Badge, it’s important that the Wood Badge presentation ceremony reflects this major accomplishment.

In Australia we divide the Wood Badge training scheme into the Certificate of Proficiency, comprised of Scouting Essentials, Scouting Adventure or Scouting Management, and Scouting Leadership.

The Wood Badge is actually made up of four elements:

  • Gilwell Woggle
  • Gilwell scarf
  • Wood Beads
  • Parchment

Adult Leaders are presented with the first part of their Wood Badge, the Gilwell woggle, on achievement of their Certificate of Proficiency. Therefore, typically a Wood Badge presentation ceremony would not include this part.
