Cumbria Scouts believe that training and support of our volunteers is essential to ensure they enjoy their role and provide the best opportunities to our members. We provided training for all of our leaders and adult supporters, both before they start their appointment and during their appointment.

Training is organised and managed by the County Training Team lead by Ian Harrop. He is supported by a team of presenters and facilitators and, in each district by a Local Training Manager to ensure you get the support and guidance you need both whilst completing your training and ongoing.

The majority of the large courses are held at the county campsite at Ennerdale, although the more frequent “getting started” course is run locally in each district on a frequent basis.

More information on the Adult Training Scheme can be found on our Training Scheme Overview Page.
