For this role you do not need to be from within Scouting, and unlike other section leadership roles, it does not require a weekly commitment. The Young Leaders Unit is unlikely to meet as a Unit more than once a month, so the Explorer Scout Leader (Young Leader) has a different routine to Explorer Scout Leaders who have weekly Explorer Scout Unit meetings.
The key focus for the role is ensuring that the Young Leaders Training Scheme works effectively and is responsible for ensuring that adequate training and supervision is provided for:
- all Explorer Scouts in the District who wish to be Young Leaders.
- other young people who are not members of the Scout Movement but are using the Young Leaders’ Scheme to meet the service or community requirement of another scheme, such as the DofE programme.
The role holder will also be responsible for ensuring that an accurate record of all Young Leaders’ training is maintained for all registered Young Leader’s and for signing-off Young Leaders’ logbooks and certificates.
