Adult volunteers are at the heart of Scouting, and we hope that you will get every bit as much out of it as you put in. Scouting is not only about young people, but also about the development of adults within the Movement.

To support adults in Scouting, Kent Scouts provides a comprehensive programme of training to build on existing skills and knowledge and develop new competencies.

Some elements of training can count towards externally-recognised qualifications, and within the movement there are also awards to recognise dedication to training and outstanding service.

We hope that the resources on our website are helpful to support all learners (new and old) in acquiring, developing, validating and extending their skills and therefore making ‘everyday an adventure’ for all members of the Scouting family in Kent.

If you ever need any support, guidance or just a question answering, please contact your Local Training Manager and we will do our very best to help.

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE TRAINING

WHO IS THIS TRAINING FOR?

This training is for all Executive Committee members, including Chairs, Treasurers and Secretaries, who sit on Group, District and County Executive Committees. This training does not replace 01E: Essential Information for Executive Committee Members, which should be undertaken separately.

HOW IS THIS TRAINING DELIVERED?

The training is a suite of five sessions. Any District or Group can book the training for their Executive Committee, however it works best with a range of Committees to share ideas and experiences.

The sessions are:

  • EC01: Executive Committees: An Introduction (core)
  • EC02: Officers of the Executive Committee
  • EC03: Effective Executive Committees
  • EC04: Finance for all members of the Executive Committee
  • EC05: Recruitment and Induction of Executive Committee members

Small Bus Permits

ALL Scout groups (or districts) who operate a minibus (whether you own it or just hire it) need a small bus permit. Small bus permits are necessary so that voluntary groups like the Scouts can charge or accept any form of remuneration for providing transport for their own members, without having to comply with the full PSV operator licensing or PCV driver licensing requirements.

You can buy the Section 19 minibus permits from the Scout Information Centre on 0845 300 1818, at a cost of £5, or you can download the application form. There is more detailed information on minibus permits in the minibus permit covering letter.

Permits are organisation not vehicle specific.
