Today, 13 January 2020, is a big day for eGuiding. Today, blended learning is introduced to the Girl Guides Australian Learning & Qualification Program (ALQP).
Girl Guides is transitioning to a blended learning model. Components of the ALQP will be delivered online through eGuiding. From today, qualification as a Unit Leader is now achievable by following your path at your pace through a combination of online eGuiding modules and a one-day face-to-face session. The first of these face-to-face sessions will be 15 February 2020 at Girl Guides NSW, ACT & NT's State Training and Outdoor Centre, Glengarry, in North Turramurra on Sydney's leafy upper north shore. For a full list of upcoming courses, go to girlguides-nswactnt.org.au/courses.

Adult Members of Girl Guides should already have access to eGuiding. Members login with their Girl Guides Membership Number and the password set when first logging in. If you're not sure that you have access or have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Over time, more of our qualification pathways will transition to blended learning. In the meantime, there are many non-ALQP courses available on eGuiding that you can use to familiarise yourself with the platform and develop universal skills.
