Occasional Helpers


Its great that you have become an occassional help with your local scout group. We want you to settle in and find for feet as soon as possible. To help you do this we provide you wth getting started training. This comprises of a combination of training modules to provide you wih the information you need to help with exciting programmes for young people.

Although there are suggestions about which modules may be best to complete first, these modules can be completed in any order, and are aimed at introducing you to your new role and giving you the basic information and skills needed to get started.

Once you have completed getting started you may wear the Gilwell woggle. Non-uniformed adults may wear the Getting Started pin. Both of these can be purchased from Scout Shops.

Getting started training for occassional helpers includes:

  • Module 1: Essential Information
  • Safety
  • Safeguarding

If you are helping run programmes in a section we suggest that you also complete:

  • Module 3: Tools for the role (section leaders)
