Online Validation – Wood Badge Modules 3 – 19

Online Validation – Wood Badge Modules 3 – 19

In Somerset we are aware that, like most Counties across the country, we do not have sufficient Training Advisers to meet the needs of our adult volunteers who are completing their training. In order to help this situation, we have introduced “on-line validation”. This method is not aimed at replacing Training Advisers who do a great job, but to supplement our offering where, in some circumstances, this option may be appropriate. This is especially true in the current situation where restrictions to meetings may prevent or hinder validation with a Training Adviser.

Getting Started Modules which are not validated at the end of the online training by certificate following self assessment :

  • Module 3 – Tools for the Role (Section Leaders)
  • Module 4 – Tools for the Role (Managers & Supporters)

Other Wood Badge Modules

  • Module 5 – The Fundamentals of Scouting
  • Module 7 – Scouting for All
  • Module 8 – Skills of Leadership
  • Module 9 – Working with Adults
  • Module 11 – Administration
  • Module 12a – Delivering a Quality Programme
  • Module 12b – Programme Planning
  • Module 13 – Growing the Section
  • Module 14 – Supporting Young People
  • Module 15 – Promoting Positive Behaviour
  • Module 16 – Introduction to Residential Experiences
  • Module 17 – Running Safe Activities
  • Module 18 – Practical Skills
  • Module 19 – International

On each page you will find a series of links to web-based validation questionnaires, these are based on the “Check your Knowledge” questions and validation activities as set out in your Adult Personal File.

Please keep your responses brief, use bullet points where this will help. You can upload any supporting documents; plans, programmes, risk assessments, feedback etc but please respect confidentiality. In your responses, where asked for, please focus your answers on the part or element that you personally played or contributed.

All boxes with an asterisk * need to be completed otherwise the file will not send. Any such areas requiring completion after a submit attempt will be highlighted with a white cross in a red circle.

All completed and submitted forms will be reviewed by a Training Adviser (this is likely to be your nominated Training Adviser if advised) and they will arrange to contact you if they think it necessary. If the validation criteria are met, your Training Adviser will let you know and update your Compass record.

Good luck and if you need any support or have questions, please get in touch at Adult-Training@somersetscouts.org.uk
