During 2024, much of the adult training scheme for Section Team members will move online (elearning).  However six modules have yet to be digitalised – and we are running these as face to face sessions for those wishing to complete the Wood Badge.  We have indicated the time of each session below, and if you plan to only attend for one or two, please name them in the notes on the application form.

Introduction to Residential Experiences (M16) (9.00 – 10.40)

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
