Young Leaders are Explorer Scouts 14 – 18 years of age who are providing help and support to section leaders within Beavers, Cubs or Scouts. The contents on this page are for young leaders and adult leaders who want to find out more.
For any additional information contact Claire Steen (contact details available from the County Directory or through your section or group scout leader).
The training scheme is module based. There are 10 modules, one is compulsory (Module A) and the rest are voluntary, although all are relevant and also beneficial if you are completing as part of one of the Chief Scout’s, Queen’s Scout or Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards.
Module A is offered 3-4 times a year to enable Young Leaders to meet the requirement of completing this within their first 3 month of joining the Young Leaders Unit. The other 9 cover topics to assist you in becoming a skilled, confident and helpful Young Leader.
Module A – Prepare for take off! This module covers key areas, which every Young Leader will need to know:
The majority of the Young Leaders Training Modules are delivered over 2 days usually Saturdays and twice a year. They generally happen in February and March and October and November to avoid exams and bust scouting periods. The sessions are very interactive with opportunities to work with others to develop some exciting programme ideas and put them into practise!
