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.
To support adults in Scouting, we provide a comprehensive programme of training to build on existing skills and knowledge and develop new competencies. 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.
One of the key principles of the adult training scheme is flexibility. It’s available to you whenever you want it. The scheme gives you the opportunity to learn at a time and place convenient to you. Make the most of the adult training scheme to see what you can discover.
