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.

For New Leaders: If you have a First Response or First Aid certificate that is in is date (i.e. less than 3 years old) please e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org to have it saved against your records. To book a place on one of the above courses, please contact email@example.com. Limited places are available on each course. There is no charge for the course. Casual clothing, uniform not required. You will need to bring a packed lunch (drinks are available) and a pad & pen.
If for some reason you have booked a place and you cannot make it or want to reschedule, PLEASE, PLEASE let one of the training team know so the place can then be offered to someone else. There have been quite a few no shows in the past and this is not fair on leaders wanting to go on courses or to the St John’s leaders, who are volunteers also.
