Amazing Leader Training

Providing great support and high quality ‘easy to swallow’ training for our adult volunteers is one of our highest priorities in our District Plan for Growth.  We need Amazing Leaders. I was delighted to be copied into a message sent to Nigel today (slightly edited to protect the innocent!):

Just a short email to thank you for the training tonight. [Name withheld] came back so highly motivated and couldn’t stop talking about all the elements of the course for the last 2 hours! She is going to start reading her new ‘Be Prepared’ tomorrow!! [Name withheld] said how you were so good with relating to younger adults…

I can understand why some people can be put off by the thought of having to do training.

But we like to think of it as giving our Leaders more skills and knowledge to make them even more Amazing so they can give our young people the best possible Scouting.

And who wouldn’t want a Wood Badge, especially in this centenary year of those iconic beads?


Happy Scouting!



I want the public to know how Scouting continues to open young people’s eyes to a world of extraordinary promise and possibilities.'
