Welcome to Young Leader Training Online!

We have moved to an online version of training due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The goal is to facilitate any Young Leader who wishes to continue their training through the Programme and achieve the award and belt buckle.

We have set out within this site 9 of the 11 modules required to complete the programme, along with the missions.

We have used the guidance provided by our County Young Leader Working Group and by the Scout Association in the creation of this information to allow you to continue your training.

We are unable to offer Module A and Module K online. If you need to do these modules don’t worry, you will be able to complete it once we return to face to face meetings.

You can still continue your training by completing some of the other modules and missions within this site.

Abbreviations used within the text:

ESLYL = Explorer Scout Leader Young Leaders
YL = Young leaders

When you have completed each Module or Mission you will be directed to upload the evidence of completion to for evaluation and update your documented progress through the Young Leader Programme.

If you would like any further information or have any problems, you can contact us at:

When uploading your Module or Mission evidence please mark your files clearly with your name and Module/Mission name.

Have fun, Keep Safe!
