ESYLs undertake 11 modules as part of their training.
Note: ESYLs and Young Leaders volunteering from outside of scouting must complete module A within 3 months.
The modules are designed to be flexible and encourage innovation, so be as creative as you can! As long as the aim and objectives are met, they can be delivered in any way by anybody with the appropriate training or experience.
Module A - Prepare for take-off (essentials and expectations)
