Young Leader Training Scheme
Young Leader training is broken up into Modules and Missions. There are a ten of modules that are designed to cover all aspects of training. They help Young Leaders become aware of, and learn how to deal with various different facets of leadership within the Scouting Movement. The modules are designed to be flexible and encourage innovation, so be as creative as you can!
Apart from the mandatory Module A, which has to be completed within three months of starting as a Young Leader (and preferably sooner), Young Leaders are free to choose which modules they wish to work on and they can be completed in any order.
There are also four missions to be completed alongside the ten modules These missions are designed to allow the Young Leaders to put the learning from the Modules into practice. By doing so, you will gain in confidence and become an integral part of the leadership team within your Section and Group.
