11 March 2014
WAGGGS’ unique online leadership course, i-Lead, is now available in French and Spanish so register today at http://glow.wagggs.org.
For the first time ever WAGGGS has made its leadership experience available to anyone over the age of 16. You do not have to be a Girl Guide or Girl Scout to join i-Lead.
600 participants have joined i-Lead already. Out of those who completed the course 84 per cent said they were happy with the course materials.
I think it is a fantastic course; it is interactive and easy to understand. The materials are relevant to me and I can see how they can be applied. There is no time restriction to go through the materials which is a great advantage for people who have limited time because of work, study or other reasons
Participant, Costa Rica
The first module of five is currently available online for you to complete. Module 1, i-discover, takes participants through topics such as leadership theory, teamwork, emotional intelligence and barriers to leadership. Module 2 will be available at the end of March. Participants can join international discussion forums and talk about issues that are raised in the course. i-Lead is free, it’s open to all, it’s easy to access, and you can complete it in your own time. Once you’ve completed a module you will receive a digital badge.
WAGGGS is a global expert in young women and leadership. In the past 100 years an estimated 250 million young women and women in 145 countries have benefited from Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting leadership programmes and opportunities. An incredible 70% of women in the US Congress were once Girl Scouts. In a recent survey conducted by WAGGGS on leadership, nearly 100 per cent of respondents in our survey felt that Girl Guiding gave them essential leadership skills.
“The great thing about this course is that it's not just for some, it's for all - open to male and female, young and old, different languages and abilities, all you need to take part, is to want to do it. And the more people we have doing courses like this, learning leadership skills and techniques, feeling empowered to put them into practice, I think it can only strengthen Guiding and Scouting in the years to come.” Participant, Ireland.
