Training

Welcome

Welcome to Training, here you will find the dates of courses and timings. The venue is Woking DHQ unless specified otherwise.

We offer up to 24 training session opportunities per year (including termly the Getting Started Modules 1, 2 & 3).

Our Training Advisers are on hand to help validate these modules undertaken and any “On Going Learning” (OGL) required.

 

The dates below are set but will only proceed subject to sufficient uptake. We therefore offer and do our best to accommodate Leaders from other Districts. Please note: It is best to book early rather than be disappointed to find the course date you wanted is already full.

 

Please also note that you can attend another District or Surrey Training Courses. We suggest that if you have not looked at the www.surreyscouts.org.uk site you click on the link and explore the other courses available. There are more opportunities available here to help towards completing the Wood Badge leader training. For example over two weekends you can do any of the 14 core modules remaining, split into 3 or 4 per day. They also offer special skills courses towards gaining permits for taking our young members on nights away experiences.

 

None of this would be possible without the dedication of the Trainers and Administrators associated with each course who give their time freely.

 

Please note in the event of failure to attend any course booked or which you cancel within 24 hours of the start time, the fee (if applicable) to cover costs will not be refundable.

 

Thank you for taking the time to visit this page if you need additional information our contact details are below. Please feel free to speak to us or to email us to request a space on a course.
