Scoutmaster Position Specific Training

Topics will include ‘Aims and Methods of Scouting’, ‘Role of the Scoutmaster’, ‘The Patrol Method’, ‘The Troop Meeting’, ‘Advancement’, ‘The Support Team’ and how to run a boy-led Troop. Every leader is sure to find several helpful ideas to bring back to their unit.
