Coronavirus - We are currently in the yellow readiness level. For the latest, updated on 16th July 2021, please click here.


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 & 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.

To book a course please click on the module above and fill in the online booking form.
