Introduction to Residential Experiences (Module 16)

Date: 2nd December 2020 Between: 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm Location: Zoom:


An overview of the role of residential experiences for young people in Scouting, and their organisation

and planning.

Topics covered

  • The role of residential experiences in the development of young people
  • Organisation and administration of residential experiences
  • Skills required within a team running a residential experience
  • The Nights Away Permit Scheme
  • Support and further information for planning a residential experience

Please note that the nights away permit scheme is operated separately from the Adult Training

Scheme. If you wish to achieve a Nights Away Permit, you will be required to complete additional training and assessment separately from the completion and validation of this module but this is a very useful first step.

Change of role

Revalidation of this module is only required if the new role contains a substantial increase in

responsibility for residential experiences. The revalidation for this module should be discussed with

your line manager and Training Adviser to determine whether it is necessary in your new role.

Validation Criteria

Please refer to page 54   Adult Personal File.
