Every volunteer role at the Scouts needs to complete training. Find out what training you need to complete for your role below.

Welcome to the 6th Gosport Training Hub

 

Welcome to the training hub at 6th Gosport Scout Group. Here you will find all your training needs to get you started on your learning journey to fulfilling your new role within Scouting.

To help you along the way there are many people who can, and will help you. 6th Gosport pride ourselves on our team spirit and you will always be welcome to chat and ask questions. One of the ways we do this is the use of social media, in the format of a closed Facebook group and also a WhatsApp group. You will be invited to join both of these when you join. These are both good places to ask for any help or assistance.

Within the group our training advisor is Nigel Fleetwood. Nigel is the Scout Leaders at the group and he will be the main point of contact for training related queries, and the person that you will need to liaise with regarding all your training and validation requirements. He can be contacted by the WhatsApp group or by emailing Training@team6th.org.

What is the adult training scheme?

Adult Training Scheme

The Scouts is a voluntary movement dedicated to the development of young people between the ages of 6 and 25. Each week over 100,000 adult volunteers, in a variety of roles throughout the UK, help Scouting to achieve its aim. While The Scouts’ primary purpose is the development of young people, it also seeks to offer personal development opportunities to adults, both within their Scouting role and as individuals. The Adult Training Scheme is one means by which adults in Scouting can be supported in their chosen role. It can also help to meet personal development needs.

Learning and validation

The Adult Training Scheme is based around two key elements:

  • Learning – This is when the adult has the opportunity to gain or improve the knowledge and skills which they need to perform their role. As the scheme recognises prior learning, knowledge and experience; individuals may not need to complete learning for every aspect of the scheme.
  • Validation – This is when a Training Adviser will check what the adult has learned, and that they can apply the skills that they have acquired to their role. Validation is essential for every module except for the mandatory ongoing learning modules.
      •  
Learning Methods

The Scouts recognises that each individual has different needs. They will have different prior knowledge and experience, learning styles, personal circumstances, motivations and support mechanisms (both inside and outside of Scouting). Therefore, a range of learning opportunities are provided.

 

An individual’s learning needs might be met in a range of ways, one of which could be a training course. They might also be met by reading a book, watching a video, talking to a friend, through practical work, by watching a demonstration, or perhaps by simply reading a set of instructions. Individuals are encouraged to use the method or methods most appropriate to their needs in order to gain the relevant learning.

The Scouts tries to demonstrate in its methods of adult learning the same methods that it employs with young people. Any range of learning experiences is therefore likely to include:

  • Ownership of the learning process by the individual
  • Learning by doing
  • Interaction with others during learning
  • A high proportion of learning on the job
  • Personal support from a named individual
  • Contributions by line managers, peers and others to the learning
  • Demonstration of the learning in practice

Location, additional needs or personal circumstances should not be a limiting factor for adult training. Therefore, the opportunity for individuals to do their learning at home has been built into most learning methods (through the use of distance learning methods, primarily workbooks, video and e-learning). As one of the key principles of the scheme is flexibility it is essential that adults have access to these different options

Summary

The Scouts’ Adult Training Scheme enables adults to gain the skills necessary for them to deliver and/or support the Programme.

Specifically, it is intended to:

  • Help people understand Scouting and their role within it
  • Give them the skills necessary to carry out that role
  • Improve the quality and quantity of Scouting delivered
  • Support adults in meeting their own personal development needs

Who can help me with my training?

Who can help?

There are lots of people who can help you along with your training. This starts at your section/committee level with your fellow leaders through to the District Commissioner himself (He is the big boss of Gosport Scouting.)

The levels of help available are as follows:

  • Section (Squirrels, Beavers, Cubs etc)
  • Group (6th Gosport – All members across all sections)
  • District (Gosport Scouting)
  • County (Hampshire Scouting)
  • Online Help (Scouts.org.uk etc)
Help at section level

At 6th Gosport we pride ourselves on our huge team ethos. This spreads across everything we do. From events with the children through to our adult social nights. 

 

This means that you can and will be welcomed to approach any member of the team.

When you join the group you will join what is called a section. This could be Squirrels, Beavers, Cubs or Scouts. Each one of these sections is made up from a Section Leader, Assistant Section Leaders, Sectional Assistants through to Occasional helpers. Any of these team members may be  able to help you?

 

Sectional Level is always the easiest and most common method of gaining help with your training. 

Help at group level

In additional to your section leaders and volunteers, we also have a large group structure. Across the 4 sections of team6th, we have loads of leaders, all at varying levels of experience and knowledge. This is also a extremely useful pool of information and experience which people would be more than happy to help with. 

Help at District level.

Within the group we have our 4 sections. These 4 sections make up the group 6th Gosport. However across Gosport there are around 12 groups all with their own sections. This collection of groups combined is called Gosport Disctrict. 

Gosport District Scouts is headed by our DC (District Commissioner) Robin Peddle. 

Robin has a fantastic team supporting him, and these individuals (Assistant District Commisioners) each hold responsibility for individual areas, such as beavers, cubs etc and also things such as activities and adult support. So there are loads of people around that can help. 

 

You can find out more about the district team at www.Gosportscouts.org.uk 

Your Training Advisor (TA)

The training Advisor at 6th is our Scout Leader, Nigel Fleetwood. Nigel has been involved in Scouting for almost 15 years in an official capacity but has been involved in some aspect his whole life in more of an unofficial role due to his families involvement. 

 

Nigel is the main point of contact at the group for all training related queries and enquiries.

 

He can be contact at the button below.

Further Learning Opportunities

Hampshire Scouts run a comprehensive training programme. As part of this they run many training days throughout the year. These can be evenings or whole weekends, and by attending one of these courses will give you all the skills you require to validate your training. 

If you follow the link below it will take you the Hampshire Scouts Website. Here you can see all the upcoming course dates and book yourself on. 

 

I strongly recommend these courses. They are delivered in  a way that enables you to link in with other Scouters from across county, meet some of the County team, but most importantly is you will get a perspective and hear experiences from members of Scouting from outside the group. This enables us to continue to grow and continually develop to give the best that we can to the young people of Gosport.

Hampshire Scouts run a comprehensive training programme. As part of this they run many training days throughout the year. These can be evenings or whole weekends, and by attending one of these courses will give you all the skills you require to validate your training. 

If you follow the link below it will take you the Hampshire Scouts Website. Here you can see all the upcoming course dates and book yourself on. 

 

I strongly recommend these courses. They are delivered in  a way that enables you to link in with other Scouters from across county, meet some of the County team, but most importantly they will cover everything you need to learn. This will put you in a great position to validate the training for these modules .

 

You will also get a perspective and hear experiences from members of Scouting from outside of the group. This enables us to continue to grow and continually develop to give the best that we can to the young people of Gosport. 

There is no online E-Learning for this module.

Validation Criteria

To validate this module the learner will need to complete one of the following:

  • Demonstrate accurate and appropriate maintenance of administrative and financial records relevant to their role, in accordance with Policy, Organisation and Rules and the Data Protection Act / GDPR.
    Evidence you could use may include one or more of the following: written material such as record
    books, member records, spread sheets or databases that demonstrate accurate and appropriate maintenance of administrative and financial records (the exact format of the evidence will depend on the methods used to record necessary data), a written or verbal statement by an observer to testify that the learner maintains accurate administrative and financial records relevant to your role, in accordance with Policy, Organisation and Rules and the Data Protection Act.

Additional validation criteria can be created in consultation with the learner if necessary. Any additional validation criteria created will need to check the learner’s knowledge and that they can apply the skills acquired to their role in Scouting.
