Thinking about Going Away?
All camps, holidays, sleepovers, PGL events, narrow boat holidays etc. must have an ‘Event Coordinator’ who holds the appropriate residential license or who is undergoing assessment while running a residential event.
Getting these qualifications is a lot of fun and will open up a world of opportunities for you and your unit. The Outdoor Team will help you every step of the way.
Information on the Qualifications:
The scheme includes a basic Going Away With Licence (1-4 of GAW) which must be completed by all Leaders who are taking their girls away on a residential. Your ALQ 1-3 must be completed before you can gain your GAW Licence, but you may begin planning the event beforehand.
Looking to gain your qualification?
Complete Girlguiding Essex West’s form before you book your event. We will then use this to find you a mentor.
