Leader Training

One Program, One Journey, One Curriculum

Every Trainee Leader and Rover Scout will embark on a five step journey to become a fully trained leader. Our new curriculum will be consistent for all leaders, as we prepare to support our Scouts on their continuous journey through the Youth Program.

As you undertake your training pathway, you have the opportunity to implement your prior learning into your course, whether that is in specific actions for our Youth Program Leaders (Leaders of Youth) or supporting other adult members for our Program Support Leaders (Leaders of Adults).
