We are looking for section leaders that can support our Beavers (6 – 8 years), Cubs (8 – 10 1/2 years) and Scouts (10 1/2 – 14 years) sections on a regular basis.
The role of a Section Leader is to manage and lead the operations of the Sections, in particular the planning and delivery of a weekly balanced programme, with the help of assistant section leaders, section assistants and young leaders. This can include planning activities that work towards badges, supporting young people to attend nights away experiences and ensuring the safety and support of all involved. Some of the tasks can be delegated to the other members within the team. The Section Leader will also attend and contribute to relevant Group and District meetings.
This role is perfect for anyone who enjoys a more management position and likes working with young people, helping them learn #skillsforlife
You will get the opportunity to work with our young people directly in order to:
- Develop and deliver safe, exciting and stimulating activities, challenges and experiences taking into account the needs, interests and abilities of the young people.
- Provide opportunities for young people to express their views on the programme and running on the Section, and that those views are taken into account.
- Actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.
- Support assistant section leaders and section supporters to understand and deliver the programme
We want to offer young people the most interesting and diverse experiences possible, that incorporates outdoors, adventure, challenges, greater social responsibility and #SkillsForLife
You will be offered training and a personal learning plan specific to your role. Regular support and supervision will be available from our Group Scout Leader and Assistant Group Scout Leader.
