  • Provide a scouting resource for the wider Scouting community (Swindon / Wiltshire)
  • Update piping and wiring
  • Refresh current building (plaster)
  • Create safe access to the loft

The work will be completed in a series of phases, phases 1 and 2 involve the ground works and superstructure and will need to be completed in 2017 to comply with the planning permission as have obtained.

Further details about the project can be found on our web site https://firstswindon.co.uk/news-events/wick-extension-plans/  

To support this construction we are looking for a Project Manager with building experience to run the project.

Training Advisers for Swindon North

Training Advisers have an essential job in providing support to those undertaking training for their appointment in Scouting and there is an ever demanding need for more adults to help support others.

As a Training Adviser you will provide much needed support to adults within the district in achieving their wood beads. You will help them feel valued, stay motivated and enjoy their time in Scouting.

The Training Adviser role:

  • It's flexible - you can choose how much time you give
  • It's enjoyable - you meet new people and make new friends
  • It's encouraging - you help enable adults to develop their role. 

Training Advisers work 1 to 1 with another adult to help support them through the Scout Association's Adult Training Modules. They listen, suggest, question and validate modules appropriate to that learner's role. It is a rewarding role to help support a learner in completing their training.

So, if you have completed your wood beads as a section leader or manager and would like to become a Training Adviser please contact the district's Local Training Manager with your intentions who will speak to you about the seven steps to becoming a training adviser.
