Adult Support

The Scout Association's Adult Training Scheme is based around showing competence in role appropriate modules.

Adult support


Leaders in Cheshire are eligible to attend the training courses free of charge. However once booked your place is reserved and “freezes out” other Leaders who might wish to attend the training modules. Therefore if you need to cancel your reserved place you must give at least 14 days notice and we reserve the right to charge you for none attendance. Please bear in mind that venues, resources and catering may have already been committed.


If you wish to attend the Residential Experience as a Beaver Scout Leader or Assistant then you need to make sure you are available for the whole weekend 16 – 18 September.

If you wish to attend the Residential Experience as a Cub, Scout or Explorer Scout Leader then you need to be available for the preparation morning 27 March plus the whole weekend 13 – 15 May.

These courses are very popular therefore only reserve a place if you are sure you can commit to the full course length and are prepared to attend all the sessions
