Training for Managers

From the start of 2017, we have been advised that the new training provision for Managers and Supporters in Scouting will be rolled out in phases; in different parts of the UK.

The current Manager/ Supporter modules will be replaced with more up to date resources, to better support our volunteers in these critical roles. The new training scheme will consist of:

  • Getting Started (Essential Information, PLP and Tools for the Role (Managers and Supporters)
  • Training for All Appointments (Fundamentals of Scouting, Changes in Scouting, Scouting for All, First Aid, Administration, Delivering a Quality Programme)
  • Independent Learning, covering the knowledge required by Learners including videos, e-learning and workbooks
  • Skills courses (three courses focusing on Skills of Management, Meeting the Challenges and Achieving Growth)

In the interim, we will be launching a range of Independent Learning resources, the first of which are five videos with accompanying learning guides. They cover the following topics:

  • Enabling change
  • Planning for Growth
  • Building Effective Teams
  • Dealing with Difficult Situations
  • Keeping, Developing and Managing Volunteers

These resources can be used to:

  • Complement some of the current modules.
  • Provide independent learning for new Managers and Supporters
  • Provide ongoing learning for existing Managers and Supporters.
