Step 1 . Check the training requirements for your role

Training modules that you need to complete depend on the volunteer role that you are taking on. To find out the modules you need, visit Appointments: Table 2 which lists all roles and their training requirements. 

Step 2 . Complete your Personal Learning Plan with your Training Adviser

We know that many Scout volunteers have prior learning which they can apply to their Scouts role. Meet with your Training Adviser and complete your Personal Learning Plan together, recognising your previous experience.
Your Training Adviser will be able to help you identify the modules when you discuss your Personal Learning Plan​ with them (if you have a role that requires this). This’ll help you identify the learning you need, as well as choosing the method of validation that’s right for you.  

Step 3 . Complete your training modules

We know that many Scout volunteers have prior learning which they can apply to their Scouts role. Meet with your Training Adviser and complete your Personal Learning Plan together, recognising your previous experience.
Your Training Adviser will be able to help you identify the modules when you discuss your Personal Learning Plan​ with them (if you have a role that requires this). This’ll help you identify the learning you need, as well as choosing the method of validation that’s right for you.  

At 6th Gosport, your training advisor is Nigel Fleetwood. Nigel is one of the Scout Leaders at 6th, but he is also one of the District Training Advisor and Nights Away Assessors.

Nigel will be your guide and mentor through your training journey and he can always be contacted via the training WhatsApp group that you will be added to, or you can email him on Training@6thgosportscoutgroup.org.

As with all training for your role in Scouting, training is optional. We are not here to waste your time, let’s be honest we are all volunteers and that time can be better spent helping the young people. So if you have previous experiences and skills we will not make you redo the training. However, ALL training must be validated. This means that all the training modules you are required to complete must be validated (checked and assessed) by a TA (Training Advisor). So if you have any training that you would like to get validated, or any training-related queries please don’t hesitate to ask.
