Training Advisors

We are continuing to roll out our Skills for Life Strategy and we need to make sure that our volunteer leaders and managers are receiving the best possible support when it comes to training and their personal development. This will enable leaders and managers to be confident that they are able to provide the best possible Scouting to young people and feel well supported by a team of training advisers. We already have excellent levels of compliance to training and we need to ensure that volunteers feel they have someone to turn to and help them in their personal development within Scouting.

There is now an opportunity for you to apply or put forward someone you know for Training Advisors and Training Advisors (Managers and Supporters).

Don’t hold back, ask for more information and you may find yourself qualified to take on the challenge!

As a Training Advisor, you will have the opportunity to work with and mentor adults new to Scouting or taking on a new role.  You will form part of the People Team in the County, who are responsible for training, permits and adult education and development. You will be based within a District although you may be asked from time to time to provide support to others in the County. 

You will know how to motivate people, develop personal development plans and have the charisma to inspire your mentees. Above all, you will believe passionately in Scouting for All; helping Scouting grow, become more inclusive, more youth shaped and make a positive impact in local communities.
