This is of course an evidence based qualification and, one which is principally supervised by a Mentor. Many parts of the qualification require discussion with the Mentor, or must be observed by the Mentor.

Though there was a gap of almost seven months between getting my ALQ book and being assigned a mentor, I now do have a lovely mentor who though we have only met once has been very helpful.

I like her attitude to the course and the qualification which seems to be based around demonstrating competence rather than merely jumping through hoops.

The qualification is split into 4 modules:

Module 1: Your role in the programme (must be repeated for each section that you volunteer in)
Module 2: Your role in Girlguiding UK [completed 13.05.08]
Module 3: Your role in safety and unit administration
Module 4: Your role in managing the unit.

Modules 1,2 and 3 need to be completed for qualification as an Assistant Leader, while modules 1,2,3 and 4 need to be completed for qualification as a Unit Leader. Module 1 should be repeated for every section in which you wish to be a Leader.

The course book is only available through County channels, however, some information is available on the Girl Guiding UK website such as a word document version of the ALQ checklist which is available here. it is also available from www.guiders.co.uk.

So far the notes in my ALQ book are rather limited and mostly stem from discussion with my GIC or my mentor. However, becasue I was working on the qualification on my own for so long I have been collecting a lot of evidence, I have now sorted these and numbered them (using little gold star stickers that i write the numbers on).
