Adult Training

What training do I need to do?

The training scheme that you will need to complete will depend on your role.
All adults accepting an appointment are required to show that they have the appropriate skills for the role.
Looking simplistically at the requirements, if your role is:-

An Administration role – this would normally require Module 1 (Essential Information) and/or Module 1EX (Essential Information for Executive Committee Members).

A Sectional or Group Assistant role – this would normally require Module 1 and Module 3 (Tools for the Role).

A Section Leader or Assistant Section Leader – this will require completion of all modules leading up to the award of a Wood Badge.

A Manager or Supporter – again, this requires completion of a Wood Badge however, some the component modules are different from that required by a Section Leader or Assistant Section Leader.

Your line manager, Training Advisor or Local Training Manager will be able to advise specifically what training you need to complete for your role.
