Award Workbooks

My Guides were not going for the Peak Achievement Awards, despite my efforts to get them interested.

  • Some girls would express interest and then lose momentum.
  • Some girls said they didn't know where to start.
  • Some girls said there was a lot to do in each award and it all seemed too hard.
  • Some girls didn't know what to do for each challenge.

So I created the Award Workbooks. These were designed to help my Guides take on the challenge of the Junior BP and BP Awards in a systematic manner, and to build on the goal setting process taught in the Australian Guide Program. They provide a step-by-step process of brainstorming, choosing, planning, doing and evaluating the challenges involved in the Awards. They have been girl tested and parent and leader audited.

My Guides think they are great. They give a structured approach to goal setting and achievement, specifically geared towards the Awards. Use the workbooks in conjunction with the Award Progress Monitors, which are different. The monitors are purely for putting up on the noticeboard so that the girls can see at a glance who has done what - maybe fostering a competitive spirit!

The Workbooks, on the other hand, are booklets that take the girls through the process of choosing which clauses to do, scheduling them, planning them, doing them and evaluating the results. They have simple instructions and a clear structure to follow, and include the basic training on goal setting and achievement that girls (most people, actually) don't get.

How many of your Guides start the Junior BP or BP Awards, but don’t finish them?

Do you find it hard to find the time in your Unit program to help every girl to earn the Junior BP Award or the BP Award?
Are they largely left on their own to do these awards?
Do they forget about doing them, because it looks too hard?

Do they and you need a system?

Well, here it is!

Introducing the Award workbooks

 Especially designed for Guides to learn how to set and achieve large goals.

 BP Award Workbook

This is a workbook for girls aged ten or over who are doing the BP Award. It provides a clear step-by-step process for brainstorming, choosing, planning, doing and evaluating all parts of the BP Award. Girls who use this workbook are highly unlikely not to finish the award.

Comes in either a comb-bound book or a set of A4 pages with plenty of room for writing. Girls may either put the pages in plastic sleeves, or punch them to fit a ring binder.

It has been tested by several girls, who all think it is a great resource. This workbook MUST be used together with Aim High.

Especially helpful for Lones

Junior BP Award Workbook

This is the companion volume to the BP Award Workbook, and is aimed at all girls who are doing the Junior BP Award who need a system of planning and record keeping. Although the Junior BP Award can be attempted from the age of seven, this particular workbook would probably be better suited to eight or older (the younger ones might need some help from a parent or leader). It provides a clear step-by-step process for brainstorming, choosing, planning, doing and evaluating all parts of the Junior BP Award.

Comes in either a comb-bound book or a set of A4 pages with plenty of room for writing. Girls may either put the unbound pages in plastic sleeves, or punch them to fit a ring binder. Please let me know which format you want.

It has also been both girl and parent tested, and voted very helpful.

Very few people are taught how to set and achieve goals, and certainly we don’t teach children how to do it. Give your girls a head start.
