Adult Training

View the Hampshire Scouts Training Diary

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, the Association provides 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.



 

Introduction

On taking up your role, you will be allocated a Training Adviser. With them, you decide which modules are appropriate to your role in Scouting. You then agree which of these, you can demonstrate an existing ability in, and how you are going to learn the others. This forms your Personal Learning Plan.

When you have completed training on one of your required modules, you simply demonstrate that you are using the skills to allow your Training Adviser to sign it off.

On completion of all your modules, you will be awarded your wood badge. From that point, you have to complete 5 hours ongoing training each year in topics useful to your Scouting.




Getting Started Training Module

These initial training modules need to be completed within five months of applying to be a Scouter.

Introduction to Leadership & Management for GSLs and ADCs

We know that inspired and motivated adults provide first class Scouting opportunities for young people. We also know that one of the most frequent comments from Leaders is that they want better support (whether that is someone to talk to, someone to thank them or practical assistance with administration and recruitment of helpers).

25th World Scout Jamboree in South Korea
07/07/2021 By Richard Mendelsohn
Squirrels Young Person 4

The UK Contingent are driving a large focus on inclusion for the South Korea World Scout Jamboree.

Essentially, the World Scout Jamboree is open for applications from all Scout members of the correct age, and these are encouraged from everybody.

To assist with financial inclusion, each county has been asked to review their financial inclusion process, and we have now done this in Hampshire.

Hampshire will be using a specific grant fund to assist participant applications via its grant committee. Grants of varying levels of up to 50% could be available for those most in need of assistance.

For more information please go here.

Coronavirus Guidance for Scouts

Leader Seated

Coronavirus rules for scouting now

 

We are now in state Green which means that activities can proceed as in normal times

 

Residential activities

Residential activities are no longer limited to six people sharing accommodation. This means more flexibility for you when planning your nights away activities, although you should still be managing the spread of COVID-19. We’ve updated our guidance to explain that members who’ve tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 90 days (but are outside of the isolation period) are no longer required to undertake lateral flow testing in order to take part. We’re aware that is could generate false positives and prevent participation.
