Adult Training

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.

Since September 1919 adult volunteers in the Scouts have been awarded the Wood Badge on the completion of their leader training. The basic badge is made up of two wooden beads worn at the end of a leather lace.

When you join Scouting as a leader you will be guided by your training advisor to formulate a training plan and decide on the best way to complete your modules. Training is flexible and rewarding. Training methods include;

  • E-Learning
  • Work Books
  • One to One
  • Small Group learning
  • Courses within your district or county.

Your training can be completed over a three year period if required, once completed you will earn your Wood Badge. 

But it doesn't stop there, the Scout Association will support you in continued training and learning. All leaders receive regular update training in safeguarding, safety and first aid.
