Leader Training

The standard training scheme for leaders is to deliver day-to-day scouting activities and ends in the Woodbadge award. Leaders can extend their skills by doing specialist training, often specialising in one of adventurous activities categories of land, sea or air.

Adults can also volunteer to be a Skills Instructor only and they do the mandatory leader training (module 1) then the specialist skills training, usually with first aid too.
