Forth Region Scouts - Resources - 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. To help you to be effective in your role we provide training and support.

Adult Training is not only an important part of your personal development. It is a requirement of the Scouting Organisation that leaders complete the training appropriate to their role. On completion of all training needs a leader is awarded their Wood Badge which is an internationally recognised award in Scouting. The Scout Association’s Adult Training Scheme enables adults to gain the skills they need to deliver and/or support the programme for young people. The scheme:


•Helps adults understand Scouting and their role within it
•Gives them the skills they need to do their job
•Improves the quality and quantity of Scouting delivered
•Supports adults in their own personal development.


Having completed the required modules and achieved the Wood Badge it is important that you continue your learning. Ongoing learning and support are both important parts of keeping the knowledge and skills of adult members up to date and relevant to the changing needs of young people and the environment in which we operate.

Forth Region's training team provides a comprehensive programme of training to build on and enhance your skills and knowledge in addition to helping build your confidence and develop you as a person.
