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.
In Tunbridge Wells we work with our Appointments team to ensure all new volunteers start their role with the right support and guidance including offering Getting Started training. Face to face courses typically run once or twice per year and are a great way to meet other new volunteers. There is also an online option for those who cannot make a course.
We also run 2-3 First Response courses per year for new volunteers and all adults needing to update their skills as part of ongoing learning. Other courses such as safeguarding, safety and skills courses are made available.
All adults, including those looking to achieve their Wood Badge, can also take advantage of courses offered by the Kent County training team including multi-module days offering multiple courses in one place, nights away training and the accelerated wood badge training weekends.
Remember too that learning is optional but validation is essential. We won't force you to attend a string of courses you don't need, the main thing is that you can demonstrate that you have up to date skills, knowledge and experience.
Please see our Training Diary for upcoming courses. We also announce training on our Facebook page.
