Thank you for volunteering your time to be a leader within Blacktoft Beacon District, you have joined the most successful youth movement the world has ever seen, with a rich history and a bright future.
To support you as an adult in Scouting, The Scout Association provides training that builds upon your existing skills, knowledge and experience. The training you will receive is intended to give you additional skills and knowledge to ensure that you can carry out your role to the best of your ability.
Every Leader is given a Training Adviser (TA) who is there to support and guide you through the training process. They will discuss with you any prior knowledge you may have and then create a plan of the training you need to complete, known as a Personal Learning Plan (PLP). Learning can be completed through a variety of methods; courses, one-to-one, workbook, small group, e-learning, etc.
The Training area of our website has 2 parts:
Training Resources – Documents and easy to find links to support with your learning now and in the future.
Training Events – A calendar with dates of all our upcoming training courses on.
