Group Leaders are our local managers and these Extranet Support Factsheets will assist Group Leaders in navigating key elements of the Extranet and support Section Leaders who are at the forefront of delivering the youth program, and manage the Group's Support committees who also support the Group's youth program and resources.
If you have a resource suggestion please send us an email.
The A2 and A3 process has now been automated. This is used to alter an Adult/Leader Classification or role/position. A move to Fellowship is considered a change, not retirement. This process is also used to retire an Adult/Leader. All State role changes and any requests for secondary appointments are completed by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org

This schedule will assist Program Support Leaders in guiding new adults or adult support, Youth Program Leaders, Program Support Leaders, Rovers, and Adult Helpers in understanding what is required from a prerequisite and training perspective when moving from their current role to a new role.
Scouts Australia's Individual Adult Volunteer Plans (IAVP) focus on the specific and tailored learning and development outcomes for each adult member. These plans are delivered in 4 Phases, described in more detail below.
The first three Phases deliberately include the term Individualin the plan to reinforce that every plan must recognise the importance of a personalised approach to establishing a volunteer plan for each adult member of Scouting. These are the Individual Adult Volunteer Plans.
The fourth Phase also recognises the volunteer nature of the commitment to Scouting whilst providing a framework to document, discuss and agree expectations where the performance of an adult member is not meeting previously agreed expectations. This is the Adult Volunteer Performance Plan.
The Guide and Phase documents are attached in the links below: -
There are instances where youth members regularly attend Scouting with another Unit whilst remaining a member of their home Group as evidenced by the wearing their home Group scarf. This is known as Hosting other Youth.
Examples might be a Venturer Scout attending another Venturer Unit as their own Group doesn't yet have a Venturer Unit or a number of Joey Scouts attending another Joey Scout Unit in their District whilst their Unit re-builds.
Where a youth member is hosted by another Group, the youth member's home Group Leader needs to reflect this participation in Extranet.
