The Movement Bar is the second stage of the Rover Advancement Programme that an invested Rover will work on.

Once a Rover has achieved their personal goals, it is envisaged that they can then render service to the Movement.

At this stage, the Rover should be relatively 'established' with regards to their Personal Development, thus allowing them to focus on new goals.


  1. Have an understanding of the training philosophies of Cubs, Scouts and Rovers, present these to your Rover Scouter or Crew Council.
  2. Obtain either a Cub or Scout Warrant* or assist with a Pack or Troop for a period of six months or assist with the scoutcraft training (with approval of District Commissioner or Regional Co-Ordinator Rover Programme) of new adult Scouters for a total cumulative period of six months. (This can be done over a series of months, as long as the total time adds up to six months)
    • A warrant may be achieved for a Brownie Pack or Guide Company, but in addition, a Guide camping license must also be achieved.
    • Service may be rendered to a Brownie Pack or Guide Company.
  3. Be proficient in all Scout scoutcraft skills up to the First Class level.
  4. Plan and run two Cub and/or Scout one day events or one overnight event/competition on a District or Regional level. The planning must be approved by the RS and a warranted Scouter for either Cubs or Scouts who must be at the event.
  5. Develop/create a poster/newspaper article/webpage or similar publicity to generate awareness for the Movement, whether it is for Cubs, Scouts or Rovers. This should be agreed upon by your RS or Crew Council.
  6. Achieve one of the following Rover Awards: Scouter Training, Scoutcraft or Project Award. If the Project Award is chosen, project should be a Scouting related project and not conflict with the Scoutcraft Award.
