Skills of Management (Managers and Supporters’ Training)

Between: 16th November 2019 - 17th November 2019 Between: 9:00 am - 1:00 pm Location: The Jack Petchey Lodge, Gilwell Park, Bury Road, Chingford, London E4 7QW

One of three courses all aimed at members who hold Manager and Supporter roles in Scouting. Supporters include volunteers who don’t line manage other volunteers, but who work with and support adults in Scouting. All three courses aim to provide members with the skills needed to carry out their role effectively and support others in doing the same. Each course helps the learners to build upon knowledge gained from the Independent Learning and to draw on their own life experiences and that of others in their tutor group. We are running these days in co-operation with our colleagues in Greater London North East.

The two days will cover:

  • How you lead,
  • Communication and Active listening,
  • How we work together,
  • Motivating your Team,
  • Mentoring,
  • Coaching and Supporting,
  • Building relationships.

We want these courses to have the widest appeal, so if you have recently been appointed or been in post for a while; if you already hold a Manager’s Wood Badge, but would like a refresh or are just thinking about taking up a manager/supporter appointment, we would very much like you to register for this training.

Refreshments and a buffet lunch on Saturday will be provided.

Overnight accommodation and breakfast will also be available for a small supplement (£10.00) payable at the course.
