Getting Started CBT

I’m a New Leader But Where Do I Start??

As a new leader in Scouting you will start your adult training by undertaking the modules which we refer to as the ‘Getting Started’. These modules are Module 1, 2 & 3 for Section Leaders or 4 for Managers and GDPR. Executive Committee members need to only complete Module 1E and GDPR.

Module 1 – Essential Information for Section Leader, Managers and Supporters

This module is for anyone who is not an Executive Committee Member. This module provides the basic information that all adults in Scouting need to know. It briefly covers the Fundamentals of Scouting, the key policies of The Scout Association and the support available to adults in Scouting.

Module 3 – Tools for the role (Section Leaders)

This module contains some basic information about your role in scouting and practical help for working within a section. The module covers the key features of the section and how to run suitable games and activities and how to promote positive behaviour.

General Data Protection Regulation Training

GDPR Training is a mandatory module for all appointments. It covers the basic information that individual’s need to know in relation to the General Data Protection Regulations, what this means for their role and for Scouting and how to effectively align with it. Topics covered:

  • Personal Data

The aim of this module is to provide all adults in Scouting with an understanding of safety practice and responsibilities as a member of Scouts, to keep everyone safe.
