Change of role

It’s not unusual for an adult to change roles in Scouting. If they have completed their training under the current Adult Training Scheme, they may need to revalidate some elements to ensure that they have the correct skills and knowledge for their new role. Other elements will not need to be revalidated.

In some cases, the need to re-validate will depend on which role you are moving from and to. Roles are split into three categories:

  • Section Leader (anyone working in a section).
  • Manager (Group Scout Leader, District Commissioner, County Commissioner, County Training Manager, District Explorer Scout Commissioner etc).
  • Supporter (Assistant District/ County Commissioner).

The following table shows the modules of the training scheme and indicates with a tick, training which you will need to validate again, and a cross for modules that you don’t. This is also indicated on the information about each module in the Adult’s Personal File and the Training Advisers Guide.
