Training Advisers have an essential job in providing support to those undertaking training for their appointment in Scouting.
Training Advisers with managerial experience, either with a Scouting role or externally, are able to become Training Advisers for Managers and Supporters to support and assess learners in their training for these key appointments.
More information on the Training Adviser and Training Adviser for Managers and Supporters roles can be found in the Role Descriptions.

Personal learning plans
Every learner will formulate a Personal Learning Plan (PLP) during one-to-one sessions with their training adviser. Occasionally, there may not be enough training advisers to provide one-to-one support for all the adults who need it and, therefore, under exceptional circumstances it may be appropriate to carry out the formulation of the training plans in a group.
