The Management of the Training Provision

The Management of the Training Provision

Overview

The Scouts’ Adult Training Scheme is nationally based, but the organisation and delivery of the scheme is local and the responsibility of each County. The organisation and delivery of skills courses for Manager and Supporter training is delivered at Regional level in England and Wales.

The County Training Manager or Assistant Regional Commissioner (Adult Training) Scotland is responsible for the overall provision of training in their County or Scottish Region. The organisation and delivery of skills courses for Manager and Supporter training is delivered at Country level in Scotland and in Northern Ireland.

There are a variety of appointments involved in the management of training provision at a local level. These are described more fully below. The term Training Manager is often used to refer to all appointments involved in the management of Adult Training.

Each adult participating in The Scouts’ Adult Training Scheme has access to a Training Adviser. The role of the Training Adviser is to:

  • Help the individual identify their existing skills and learning needs
  • Help them construct a Personal Learning Plan
  • Support them through that plan to completion

Depending on the size and structure of the County there may also be a range of Training Administrators based at local or County level.

Regional Training Managers work across England, providing support to Training Managers in a specific Region. They do not line manage Training Managers but can provide them with individual support on issues within their County as well as being involved in the induction of new Training Managers.
