The aim of our friendly and approachable the team is to share and increase the knowledge and skills of all adults within the County. We all, whatever our role, have something to contribute to this objective.

There are a wide range of roles, open to all applicants. Many roles could be carried out by adults with other roles in Scouting – you don’t need to give up a local role you love to help support other adults in the County. But if you fancy a change or a new challenge we can also offer this.

We are looking for:

  • Training Advisers
  • Modular Training Presenters & Facilitators
  • Safeguarding and Safety Awareness Presenters
  • First Aid Trainers
  • Training Module Managers

Who are we?

  • Aida Woolley, Julia Pich and Veronica Dewey – County Training Managers (who head the team of trainers, Local Training Managers and Training Advisers)
  • Stuart Dickens – County Safety and Safeguarding Co-ordinator
  • Dave Pullen – County Safety Co-ordinator
  • Vacant – County Active Support Co-ordinator
  • Alex Tomkins – County Inclusion Adviser

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
