County Training Review

As part of our ongoing commitment to ensuring training needs are met for all Leaders and Adult Volunteers, there is currently a review underway of how training is delivered and the structure of the training system around the County.

Views have been sought from a range of people around the County, including the training team members, Group and Section leaders, County Team members to name a few. We want to make sure everyone gets the best possible opportunities to learn in a variety of ways to complete the training that is appropriate for their roles and to learn new skills as they progress to support our youth members and each other. More news will follow as plans are formulated.
