Sep 20 @ 7:00 pm – Sep 22 @ 12:00 pm
YL Training - Modules C I J - Sept @ Raywell Park

Young Leaders from across the County come together to undertake some of their progressive training.  A fun and challenging weekend with activities, tasks and discussions taking place with an opportunity to socialise in the evening.

MODULES

We have changed when we are delivering each Module to allow best use of our time over the training weekends, so please look carefully at the Modules being run on this weekend. At this weekend the majority of the Modules will be run outside.

This weekend will provide Training for Modules C, I & J, with Module A being run too.

Please indicate which Modules you need to do when you book on through Online Scout Manager.

MODULE TIMINGS

Module A: Saturday 9:00am – 12:30pm (Activities will be running for those that don’t need Mod A during this time.)

Module I & J: Saturday 1:30pm – 5:30pm

Module C: Sunday 9:00am – 12:00pm

MISSIONS

We are no longer requiring Young Leaders to come and spend the weekend “writing up” their Missions with us. We are happy for these to be done in their own time and either shown to the Young Leader Leader in your District or brought to the County Young Leader Support Team at any time during the training weekend, to be signed off.

If you would prefer to visit us during the weekend, then just let us know when you will be arriving so we can have the kettle on!

ACTIVITIES

As requested at previous training weekends, we will be offering activities to those not completing Module A on the Saturday morning around the theme of Scouting Skills. If any Young Leaders have a request of a skill they would like, then please get in touch.

COST

Young Leader training is now offered free of charge to all Young Leaders. However, you still need to book and the County reserve the right to make a charge of £10 per person for any places booked where people do not turn up or cancel prior to the weekend.

WHAT TO BRING

This is an outdoor weekend so Young Leaders will need to bring their own camping and sleeping equipment. All food is provided and catered for centrally. 

Full uniform is no longer required for these events. You should wear casual Scouting clothing (iScout, group/unit t-shirts) and neckers.

All electrical items are brought at your own risk. We may ask you to use devices with internet access at certain points during the training modules, such as to find Programme ideas online, otherwise we expect Young Leaders to be respectful of when they use these.

LEADERS

Explorer Leaders or Section Leaders are welcome to visit any of the training over the weekend. A member of the County Young Leader Support Team will always be available to answer any questions you have.

BOOKINGS

We are now using an online system called Online Scout Manager to easily coordinate all our admin for Young Leader Training. It is a safe, secure and GDPR compliant system that saves Leaders a lot of time and it also saves a lot of paper. This system also has a portal for Parents/Guardians to access and provide us with all the details we need, without having to complete any paper forms.

If you have booked onto a Training Weekend through OSM before, then you will receive an email inviting you direct from OSM.

If you haven’t booked on to a YL Training weekend through OSM before, then parents should email yladmin@humbersidescouts.org.uk with your young person’s name, date of birth and their Scout Group. We will then send you a link to access the portal. Please note, this email must come from a parent, not the Young Leader.

Young Spokespeople (YSP): Speaking up and Standing up for Scouting! @ Raywell Park Activity Centre
Nov 23 – Nov 24 all-day
Young Spokespeople (YSP): Speaking up and Standing up for Scouting! @ Raywell Park Activity Centre

Do you know an Explorer Scout who is keen to promote the Movement and learn more about the media? The Scouts Speak Up (SSU) course trains 14-18 year olds to be confident Young Spokespeople (YSP). They will find out how to talk positively to journalists and get their message across in front of the camera.

By speaking coherently and eloquently, Explorer Scouts encourage other young people to join, more adults to volunteer, and communities and benefactors to support the skills for life that Scouting undertakes. Why? Young people are Scouting; only they can convey the fun, challenge and life-changing adventure that Scouting offers, as they’re experiencing it first-hand.

Scouts Speak Up (SSU)

·       Engage in and practice print, radio and TV interviews;

·       Learn about advocacy – how to plan and carry out campaigns;

·       Develop in communication, presentations skills and self-confidence.

This free event for Explorer Scouts (aged 14-18) is limited to 30 spaces on a first come, first served basis.  If you have any questions, or to book a place, please e-mail: scoutsspeakup@gmail.com.

At the bottom of this page, you will find the weekend’s permission and health form, kit list and pre-course homework. The event timings will be e-mailed to those Explorer Scouts who successfully secure a place.

What’s more? You’ll earn the Media Relations and Marketing Activity Badge.
