Training Program

Adult Training and Development

Welcome to Scouting

All Scouts WA Leaders or other Adult Members undertake a comprehensive training program to equip them with the necessary skills and knowledge to fulfil their role.

Whether you are a brand new Leader, current Leader, former Leader coming back into the Association, Rover Scout, or Venturer Scout in the Young Leader Development Program (YLDP) – Scouts WA will provide you with the training required. This will develop leadership skills to ensure adventurous, fun, challenging, and inclusive programs for all Members.

The training program is designed to provide the knowledge and expertise to develop and recognise the skills of youth or adults that you are leading, as well as growing your own leadership, skills, and knowledge. Adults are trained in leadership and management, program delivery and support, problem solving, creativity, organisational management, and outdoor activities.

Depending on your chosen leadership role you will complete Youth Program Leader Training or Program Support Leader Training. The training consists of a variety of On the Job Milestones, On Demand Modules (online) and Face-to-Face training courses.

The Wood Badge training program is designed nationally by Scouts Australia, to meet the requirements of the World Organisation of the Scout Movement (WOSM). The training program is developed and delivered by a team of qualified volunteers.

On Demand Training for Child Safe Scouting and Workplace Health & Safety (WHS) for Scouting are mandatory requirements for all Adult Members.

We look forward to seeing you at our future courses:

  • Scouting Essentials and Scouting Adventure Training for Youth Program Leaders
  • Scouting Essentials and Scouting Management Training for Program Support Leaders
  • Scouting Leadership Training for all Leaders completing their Wood Badge

Donating to the Training Program provides the opportunity for a greater number of adult volunteers to access both Scouting training and VET qualifications.
