Step 1 – Personal Learning Plan
Every learning journey is different. Meet with your Training Adviser to create a Personal Learning Plan that takes into account the requirements for your volunteer role and your individual learning needs. The plan will show the training and the support that you will receive to help you to carry out the responsibilities and fulfil the training requirements for your role. Once you have agreed your role description with your line manager you need to create a plan for your own training called a personal learning plan. The plan will detail not only those modules that you need to do, and some others you might like to do, but also how you will do the learning required for them.
To support you in your first five months of volunteering with the Scouts you will need to complete your Getting Started training. You can complete these in any order.
