Going Away With (Modules 5-9)

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.

  • 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.

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.

A session for Leaders of all sections to find out more about how to help the girls in your unit progress towards their programme theme awards. Take a close look at unit meeting activities and skills builders and learn about how to plan the programme to help girls of all ages choose their activities and enjoy a balanced and varied Girlguiding programme.

The programme is based around six themes including know myself, express myself, be well, have adventures and skills for my futures.   There are 12 skills builder topics and they all link with the programme themes, covering everything from outdoor adventures and first aid to learning leadership skills. Skills builders are designed to help girls develop core skills from networking to first aid and there’s six fun-filled stages to work through in each topic and girls earn a badge for every stage they complete!
