Adult Learning

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.

All training within Thurrock is provided free of charge and tailored to your role, past experiences and knowledge.

Introduction to the Adult Training Scheme

All training courses must be booked through the County Training Booking System: bookwhen.com/essex-scouts-adult-training

There are various resources available on The Scout Association’s website including workbooks, e-learning and more.

There are also resources dedicated to Safeguarding, Safety and GDPR training.

New Leadership and Management Training for Managers and Supporters

As part of the new training for Managers and Supporters in Scouting, a range of resources have been launched.

The new videos, workbooks and short pieces of e-learning provide Managers and Supporters with practical tips on dealing with difficult situations, building effective teams, managing change, development planning as well as recruitment of adult volunteers.

The new resources can be used to provide independent learning for new Members, as well as ongoing learning for existing Managers and Supporters.
