  • VO90864
  • Home-based volunteering


Description

Training Advisers (TA) provide adult Scouts training support to help our young people be the best they can be. No prior Scouting experience is necessary to join as a TA, nor is formal training experience. Young people are amazing. It’s our role to help them realise this. And you can, as an essential TA helping our adult leaders deliver the best scouting experience for our young people. Flexible volunteering is available across the region in days and hours. Learn and grow as you go with this role.

Trainers are key to the volunteer training scheme at the Scouts. Training Advisers (TA) have an essential job in providing support to those undertaking training for their appointment in Scouting. The key role of a TA is to support a learner through The Scouts’ Adult Training Scheme. Our excellent South East Scotland Scouts TA team provide our volunteers with superb assistance, the tools and tips to feel trained, supported and happy in your role.

As a TA you will help adults navigate through the training process. You'll start by identifying the training needs for the person concerned and agreeing a Personal Learning Plan (PLP), planning how these needs can be met, validate training and possibly presenting some key modules as part of your learning or skills presentations. You will work with a wider experienced Training Team to support our learners.

The ultimate goal is to help our adult leaders secure their 'Wood Badge' which you'd play a pivotal role as this will mean they can deliver the best scouting experience for our young people today and tomorrow. Our training is award-winning and you have the chance to be part of this amazing experience - learning and growing as you go.

Our South East Scotland Scouts 7 Districts teams, who are – Borders, Braid, Craigalmond, East Lothian, Edinburgh North East, Midlothian and Pentland are all looking for new faces to join our expanding training team in line with our recovery post covid and ongoing growth.
