Adult Training

           


These pages will help you understand the training modules and which ones are applicable to your particular role(s). Training/Validation is obligatory for all leaders and will support you in your leadership of the Young People in your care. Training will help you to organise exciting and adventurous programmes and outdoor experiences for the members in your section.

The following information informs you of the method of training delivery in West Lancashire.

Before you begin your training, you will meet with your Training Advisor (TA) to discuss your Personal Learning Plan (PLP) i.e. Module 2. At this meeting, you will  discuss the knowledge you already have and plan how you are going to fulfil the necessary training requirements.

Note: All modules must be validated by a Training Adviser before they will be signed off on Compass. This will then allow an application for Woodbeads to take place.
