We ask most of our adult volunteers to undertake training appropriate to their role. Leaders and Assistant Leaders need to complete Modules 1-19 (Wood Badge) and Section Assistants just Modules 1, 2 & 3. Managers have a separate training scheme now.

You don’t necessarily need to attend a training course to complete a Module – have a look at the validation sheets below and if you think you meet the requirements (you may have prior knowledge or experience which you can demonstrate) then have a chat to your Training Advisor who will sign you off if they are satisfied.

If you do need to attend a course, once you’ve attended it you still need to chat to your Training Advisor and meet the validation requirements before they’ll sign you off for that Module.

It is also a requirement that first response training is done and refreshed every 3 years, and that safety and safeguarding training is completed every 5 years.

Modules 1 & 3 must be completed within 5 months of a Leader starting in their role (1 & 4 for Managers, just Module 1E for Executive members), and Section Leaders and Assistant Section Leaders must finish their Wood Badge within 3 years.
