Explorers Instructor Activity Badge

Explorers Instructor Activity Badge

Instructor badge

What's next? Share your knowledge, teach others, and inspire the next generation.

How to earn your badge:

  1. Hold the activity badge in your chosen activity.
  2. Know what a young person in your section has to do to achieve the activity badge, so that you can instruct them in that subject.
  3. Attend a training course covering the technical skills involved in the activity badge and the use of appropriate training methods.

    If there’s no recognised technical skill course for your badge, an individual training programme can be arranged with a qualified instructor.

  4. Assist with the training of other young people in your section in the subject, over a period of at least three months.

Tips

  • You need to do 1, 2 and 3 before you can begin number 4.
  • If you already have an Instructor badge in another area, you may not have to complete number 3.

June 2024.

Requirements can be adapted to suit each young persons abilities. See our guidance on flexibility.
