Humberside Training Team

Here we will try and give you an understanding of how training within Scouting is broken up to suit different roles and responsibilities.

To find out what's on offer, take a look at our training calendar!

What training do you need?

Depending on your role, you will be required to do different amounts of training. The easiest way to figure out what you need is to look at the module matrix (linked below). 

Everyone however is required to do mandatory learning. These can be found here!

Training is dependent on your role

You will also find on this page a really simple description of the different role types we have in scouting. This should help you when trying to identify what training you need to complete.

Take a look at the different role descriptions below!

Role Descriptions

Section Leader

A Section Leader is exactly that – there’s no distinction whether it’s a Beaver Leader, a Cub Leader, and Assistant Cub Leader, an Assistant Scout Leader or an Explorer Scout Leader. If you work directly with young people, then you are a Section leader.

Sectional Assistant

A Section Assistant is an adult who helps a Section leader and works directly with young people. A Section Assistant is required to undertake some training and to validate the Getting Started Modules 1 Essential Information and 3 Tools for the job (Section Leaders)


A Manager is someone who has a direct line responsibility – so that’s a Group Scout leader, District Explorer Scout Commissioner, District Commissioner or County Commissioner.

Sections Supporters

A Section Supporter is someone who supports a section within a scouting district or county – so that’s for example the Assistant District Commissioner (ADC) Scouts, Assistant County commissioner (ACC) Cubs, or ADC Beavers. Generally speaking they don’t directly manage Leaders. They are not managers. These supporters have a wealth of knowledge and can help you in your role.

Other Supporters

Other supporters are those who perform supporting roles but don’t directly have a link to a Group e.g. ADC Activities, ACC International


Others’ is exactly that – anyone not in any of the above. So that includes trainers, presenters, course directors, but also Group Treasurers, District Chairman etc. Everyone needs to undertake some training – the minimum is Module 1: Essential Information (which can be done in the comfort of your own home).
