Adult Learning and development

The County organise regular workshops covering different modules that are advertised on the events page.

To support adults in Scouting, the Association provides a comprehensive programme of training to build on existing skills and knowledge and develop new competencies.

Adult volunteers are at the heart of Scouting, and we hope that you will get every bit as much out of it as you put in. Scouting is not only about young people, but also about the development of adults within the Movement.

Some elements of training can count towards externally-recognised qualifications, and within the movement there are also awards to recognise dedication to training and outstanding service such as the Wood Badge.

How to highlight the skills you use in Scouting on your CV

The training that you will receive as a member of Scouting has implications beyond your role. When applying for a job it is important to remember to include the formal scout training that you have taken part in had within, as well as what you have learnt informally through experience.

Scouts Training

Every role volunteer in Scouting is required to complete some training which is tailored to their role.

Your training can help you learn new skills to support you when you’re running your section, managing a dispute or even taking some Cubs out on the water for the first time.
