Skills Exchange

FireAs Scout or Guide leaders, you are expected to teach core skills to your section, but what do you do if you don't know those skills yourself - let alone know how to teach them? Redditch District is putting on two Skills Exchange days where we will teach you how to teach core subjects to your section.

The sessions are open to Scout and Guide leaders, but, because we are Scout leaders, there will be a bias towards teaching the skills to Scout sections.

The Skills Exchange days will run from 9am-4pm at the Astwood Bank Scout and Guide hut and on Nash's Acre - the field behind the hut. 

You will need to bring a packed lunch.

We are limited to 18 delegates, so you need to book early to reserve a place.

Note that we will be charging a £10 returnable deposit to attend these training days. We will return your £10 deposit on the day, so the training is free in effect. Obviously, if you fail to turn up, you will forfeit your deposit.


We're sorry to say that we don't have any Skills Exchange days planned at the moment.
