Individual Adult Volunteer Plans

Individual Adult Volunteer Plans

In 2021 the National Operations Committee supported a recommendation for the National Adults in Scouting Committee that the Adult Development Plan (ADP) be replaced with a suite of plans which focus on learning and development outcomes tailored to each adult member. The plans are delivered in 4 phases, described in more detail below.

The first three phases deliberately include the term Individual in the plan to reinforce that every plan must recognise the importance of a personalised approach to establishing a volunteer plan for each adult member of Scouting. These are the Individual Adult Volunteer Plans (IAVP)

The fourth phase also recognises the volunteer nature of the commitment to Scouting whilst providing a framework to document, discuss and agree expectations where the performance of an adult member is not meeting previously agreed expectations. This is the Adult Volunteer Performance Plan (AVPP).

Team Leaders should store completed IAVPs for their team members in their formation's MS Teams OneDrive

The Guide and Phase Documents are attached below.
