Scouts of Uruguay renew Adult Management System with support from WOSM Services consultant
Adults in Scouting is a core part of our Movement. It is based on a systematic approach of supporting adults to improve their effectiveness, commitment and retention so that better programmes are delivered to young people. Through WOSM Services, direct support can be provided by WOSM consultants to strengthen any area of support needed by National Scout Organizations, including the example we are about to look at from Uruguay.
From March to June 2019, the Movimiento Scout del Uruguay, supported by Janet Márquez from the World Scout Bureau, Interamerica Support Center, updated their Adult Management System. They designed and implemented a new training for their adult trainers to upscale their existing competencies.
"The consultant's work was tailored and personalized for our NSO, we highlight this fact since we recognize the work, effort and dedication that this entails. The results obtained will contribute to having a more coherent adult management and adjusted to our reality.” – Scouts of Uruguay
The first part of the service consisted of the development of the guiding documents and building a work plan that would allow the national team to have clear goals and deadlines. Subsequently, a number of online meetings were held to design the training course and its implementation, making this the organization's newest course completely based on their competencies scheme.
The process resulted in three essential documents that were produced for the Scouts of Uruguay: The National Manual for Adult Management, the Dictionary of Competencies and Observed Behaviors, and the Manual of Job Profile based on competencies. Likewise during the three months, a methodology was developed to build the training processes for trainers under the NSO’s new adult management system.
WOSM Services has over 200 trained WOSM volunteer consultants ready to support NSOs around the globe. If your NSO/NSA is ready to request support in any area, you may place your request on WOSM Services to get started.
