Adult Induction and Training

We believe that every adult coming into Scouting should be valued. Your manager (either the GSL or Group Chair, dependant on your role) should agree your new role with you, and explain the various aspects of the role and the appointment/training process. 
At 5th Risca we believe passionately that adults shouldn't have to pay a penny to volunteer, and so will repay any reasonable expenses incurred through your volunteering. If you are wanting to take your Scout promise and become a member of the movement, we will provide you with a uniform, necker, woggle and badges for free as well. 
We have a training scheme to assist you in gaining the required skills for your new role, this is broken into modules to help you plan and then validate your training. The modules available ensure you have the skills, knowledge and  understanding to be successful in your new role. The modules required depend upon your role; we have identified the modules below.
The Scout Association’s adult training scheme allows you to recognise your previous experience from within and outside of Scouting when planning your learning. Flexible local learning opportunities are available to help you learn best in a way that suits the life you lead.
Validation activities formally demonstrate to all, within and outside of Scouting that you are able to apply your learning into your role
Completing learning is a three step process: planning, doing, validating.
