The Young Leader Explorers
Becoming a new Young Leader Leader
The Young Leaders' Scheme
The Young Leader's (YL) Scheme has been carefully thought out to ensure that an Explorer Scout working with younger sections are given the support and training they require to develop as leaders. It is specially designed for this age group. However, it has also been designed to tie in with the new adult training scheme.
The Young Leaders Scheme is based around the following modules:
A. Prepare for take off
B. Taking the Lead
C. That's the way to do it
D. Understanding Behaviour
E. Game on
F. Making Scouting Accessible and Inclusive
G. What is a high quality programme?
H. Programme Planning
I. What did they say?
J. Communicate it!
K. First Aid Masterclass
Each module in the scheme (with the exception of module K - First Aid Masterclass) is designed to take 1-2 hrs. They can therefore be delivered as stand alone modules in an evening - or a number of modules could be run on over a weekend.
At the end of each module each young leader's certificate of achievement is updated and perhaps a new one for each module can be issued for each module completed.
There are also a number of suggested projects - one of which must be completed each year.
