Come along and have some fun enhancing your practical skills as a Leader which will aid you in delivering even better programmes for your Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorer Scouts.  This is an ideal training day for new leaders of every section and Module 18 will be validated on the day.   It is also a way of completing some of your on-going learning (15 hours over 3 years).

You will have the opportunity to attend 7 sessions from all the skills bases on offer.  Each skills base will run 45 minute sessions throughout the day and will be timed as below:
