Coronavirus (COVID-19) - We are currently in the Green Readiness Level which means that all activities can resume. Residential activities and international travel may also take place. For the latest updates, please check out the Scouts website.

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

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.

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 such as the Wood Badge.

Mandatory training

All adults in Scouting are required to do a minimum level of training within a maximum time frame (5 months). This is to ensure all volunteers are equipped with the right tools for the role and keep our young people safe. Speak to your training advisor or the local training manager if you are unsure of what’s required.

Scouts Training

Every role volunteer in Scouting is required to complete some training which is tailored to their role.

Your training can help you learn new skills to support you when you’re running your section, managing a dispute or even taking some Cubs out on the water for the first time.

Northamptonshire County Scouts organise regular training courses that can be booked online here.
