What do Senior Section do?

Senior Section member

During her time in the Senior Section, a young woman participates in a programme known as Look Wider, which is based on the principles and methods of guiding. It is designed to appeal to all young women and offers fun and flexibility to suit the individual.

The programme is also linked to a variety of recognised qualifications or awards, both within and outside guiding. The opportunities and challenges which it offers can be followed by a group or by individual members. The choice is made by the members themselves.

The Look Wider Programme is based around eight programme areas known as Octants:

  • Creativity
  • Fit for Life
  • Community Action 
  • Out-of-doors 
  • International 
  • Independant Living
  • Personal Values
  • Leadership
