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 Scout Association provides a comprehensive programme of training to build on existing skills and knowledge and to 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.
The links below will take you to invaluable training resources and they provide an introduction to and overview of The Scout Associations' Adult Training Scheme. They are an excellent source of information for any questions that you might have relating to training. The Training Advisers Guide and Adults Personal File also provide information about the validation criteria for each training module.
