Training and ongoing learning

A range of support is available to support adult volunteers to deliver inclusive Scouting.

Online support
Up-to-date information and guidance around additional needs can be found within the Scouting for All section of Member Resources at scouts.org.uk/diversity

This includes specific content around our policy and approach and working with parents and carers, and specific information about a range of additional needs, including autism. Challenging behaviour can sometimes be linked to a young person’s additional needs, and there is guidance around behaviour at scouts.org.uk/behaviour

E-learning is also available on supporting young people’s emotional wellbeing and mental health via our Mind Ed pathway.

The Adult Training Scheme
In the Adult Training Scheme, content related to additional needs can also be found in Module 7: Scouting For All, which can be used to provide an introduction to inclusion and diversity, and practical advice about how to make Scouting inclusive.

Module 15: Promoting Positive Behaviour can be used to support adult volunteers to proactively promote positive behaviour and appropriately manage challenging behaviour in their sections.

Please contact info.centre@scouts.org.uk for any questions or support.
