Adult Training

Adult volunteers are at the heart of Scouting, and we hope that you will get every bit as much out of it as you put in. Scouting is not only about young people, but also about the development of adults within the Movement.

To support adults in Scouting, the Association provides a comprehensive programme of training to build on existing skills and knowledge and develop new competencies.

Some elements of training can count towards externally-recognised qualifications, and within the movement there are also awards to recognise dedication to training and outstanding service.

 Scout Association provide E-learning for many modules, but in addition most scout counties or areas also offer training opportunities.


Training courses available to British Scouting Overseas members can be delivered in a variety of ways:

Locally to you within a District (this could be at District events/camps)

Scout groups may have bespoke courses and sessions planned with their Local Training Manager and District Training Team.

Area Delivered Training (this could be online or at Area events/camps)
