Training

Congratulations to those Leaders who have achieved their Wood Badges! How many more of you have nearly completed your Wood Badges? How about inviting a Training Advisor to validate those last few modules?

Training Opportunity

Woking District Scouts Training Team are looking to add to the team. We need to continue to offer the current level of training, but also expand on the modular-based courses and safety-based OGL to Leaders, Managers and Supporters through local courses and individual one-to-ones via Training Advisors.

Delivering and validating this training requires certain life skills, Scouting knowledge and an ability to work with Adults in a collaborative friendly instructive manner. If you have a "can do attitude" and want to develop your life skills in this direction knowing you will be supported and part of a team we would like to hear from you. This may suit an individual who can't keep to a weekly regular commitment in Scouting or extend their current role, but more importantly wants to share their knowledge and experience with our new or existing Leaders in line with the Scouting guidelines. Full support and training is available locally and through the Surrey Training team at Bentley Copse.

Anyone wishing to know more can express their interest in confidence by contacting the relevant members of the team below.
