Guiding's distinctive Method
Girlguiding UK believes in the value of learning by doing. This is put into practice through a
Method with five interlinking elements, known as the Five Essentials of guiding:
= working together in small groups
= encouraging self-government and decision making
= a balanced and varied programme
= caring for the individual
= sharing a commitment to a common standard.
The Guiding Method is delivered to young members grouped by age into four sections:
Rainbow Guides, Brownie Guides, Guides and Senior Section members. Its principles apply to
all members, including adults.
