Nights Away Advisers / Adventurous Activity Assessors Workshop

Date: 21st September 2024 Location: Huish Woods Scout Campsite, West Hatch, Taunton

Somerset County Team are putting on a Workshop on Saturday 21st September 2024 for all Nights Away Advisers and Adventurous Activity Assessors. There will be two sessions; in the morning (09:30 – 12:00), we will be covering  Nights Away Advisers and, in the afternoon, (13.00 – 15:30) Adventurous Activity Assessors.

You are welcome to attend one or both and, bridging the session, we will be providing lunch. The Workshop will be held at Huish Woods Scout Campsite West Hatch, Taunton.

The sessions will be led by members of the National SASU (Adventurous Activities and Nights Away), part of the UK Programme Support Team. They will cover any recent changes for permits, activities and safety requirements. In addition, as part of Transformation, the separate appointments will be replaced by accreditations, this too will be covered; what it means and how it works.

It is a great opportunity to learn from each other, ask questions, debunk myths, and find out about what is happening elsewhere in the country.
