Out of Hut Form


Thanks to County, we now have access to an online Nights Away form, which also has a feature so you can attach/upload your Risk Assessment.  Please do use this form; it will be much quicker and easier for everyone.

Training for Adult Volunteers

Getting Started modules - To support you in your first five months of volunteering with the Scouts, we have a number of training modules for you to complete. You can complete these in any order.

Training for all appointments - When you're working towards completing your Wood Badge everyone with a volunteer appointment should complete the modules on this page. Once you've completed these modules, visit the main training pages to complete modules which are specific to your volunteer role.

General information for Learners

Training requirements matrix (POR Chapter 16 Roles Table) - check the training requirements for your role.  Training modules that you need to complete depend on the volunteer role that you are taking on. For additional information about Adult Roles, visit POR Chapter 16
