Ongoing Learning

Ongoing learning is any training, learning or development that you then use in your scouting role.

Our needs as leaders are constantly changing, so to do a good job for our young people it's important that we are always learning and refining our skills.

The final act of a training adviser is to agree the learner’s ongoing development for the first five years. Monitoring progress through the review programme then becomes the responsibility of the learner's line manager.

Over the period of appointment you are only required to complete an average of five hours' ongoing learning each year.
