As a new leader in Scouting you will start your training by undertaking the modules which we refer to as the ‘Getting Started’ modules. These modules are module 1, 2 & 3 or 4 for Line Managers.
These modules need to be completed within your first 5 months in Scouting so that your full warrant can be issued.
To help you plan and validate these modules you will be allocated a Training Advisor who can guide you through your learning process.
Your Group Scout Leader is responsible for helping you achieve your training so please ask then for their help when you need it.
Once you have completed your ‘Getting Started’ you are in control with the help of your GSL to book onto courses, attend the training and request validation for modules you are ready to sign off to achieve your Wood Beads.
A training advisor will contact you to arrange validation when you have made the request.
