Meeting The Challenges (1 day)

This course will help you become an even better Manager in Scouting.

Due to Covid19 restrictions Devon Scouts have redesigned the face 2 face Meeting the challenges course to be run on an online platform. 

This course consists of three 2 hour online sessions. To ensure that all of the criteria is met there is a small amount of pre-course reading and between session work. None of these additional pieces of work will take any longer than 20 minutes to complete. All work completed can be added to your portfolio of evidence for validation.

Please register below as there are only 18 places per online course

Sessions will include whole group interaction, small group work with facilitators and some individual reflection.
