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. To help you to be effective in your role we provide training and support to help you do your role, stay safe and protect young people.

The Gloucestershire County training team provides a programme of training to build on and enhance your existing skills and knowledge. Some elements of training can count towards externally-recognised qualifications while others help build confidence and develop you as a person.

An introduction to the adult training scheme can be found in the Adult Personal File for section leadership  or the Adult Personal File for Managers and Supporters you can find out about each of the modules the learner resources available to support them. You will also be given a training advisor from your District to help guide you through your training.

Find out when and where training courses are running and book a place online, by visiting the Training Calendar.

The Adult training scheme contains a number of modules, but don’t worry you do not have to do them all.
