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.
Once you have the basic licence (GAW Modules 1-4), you’ll need to complete additional modules if you plan to take on more of the organisation of your next trip – for example, Module 5 on catering if you plan to provide food. 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.
Before completing any of the above modules, you must have completed, or be working towards, the Going Away With licence.
Module 9 – travelling abroad
If you’re planning to take girls on a residential abroad, you should have completed, or be working towards, the Travelling abroad module. This module has a set of minimum requirements you need to fulfil before you can complete it – visit our Travelling abroad page for more information.
