We’re living in different times just now, so we need to do things a little differently.  You’ll have seen the information about the e-learning that’s always been available on the Scout website at https://sesscouts.org.uk/adult-training/. As always, Safety, Safeguarding and Getting Started are the priorities.

We’re also piloting a virtual training session using the Zoom platform.  Participants will need to download Zoom in advance and will be sent details of the ‘meeting’. They will then sit in the comfort of their own homes, refreshment at their elbow, and on 12th May at 7.30pm will join in a session on Administration (module 11).   

We’re already looking at offering other modules in this way, Assessing Learning (25) for prospective Training Advisers is next on the list. All courses will be posted on the website in the training calendar as usual, and I’ll let the ADCs know what’s on so they can spread the word.  

It would be really good to get some feedback on what works well (or not so well!) and what you would find most useful.   Please feel free to email Training@sesscouts.org.uk.  Be aware that I’m still working though, so won’t be able to reply instantly!

Take care, and stay safe.
