Welcome to Training at Malahide Sea Scouts. With support from Scouting Ireland trainers we provide an adult training scheme to help volunteer leaders to deliver an active programme to the youth in their care. The scheme is known as Woodbadge Trail, its strands are outlined below.
For full details of the scheme, see the resource Training Programme Scouters.
Whether you’ve come up through the ranks in Scouts/Ventures or just come in off the street, you need to do the Induction evening to become a Scouter (Leader). At your Induction evening you will be invited to supply your name, address, mobile number, email address, and date of birth. Scouting Ireland have introduced a new online system for making an application to become a new volunteer scouter. No paper applications will be handled anymore. After the Induction Evening, there are 6 more steps of the induction process. These steps are outlined below:
- Complete online e-learning module(s) when requested.
- You will then receive a link from Scouting Ireland to complete an online application.
- You will need to supply 2 reputable referees (only 1 may be a member of Scouting Ireland) along with their contact details. We request you provide a mobile number and not a landline.
- Complete online Garda Vetting. (Note: Last page of this PDF “Parent/Guardian Consent Form – NVB 3″ is only required for applicants under 18 years of age.)
- Produce 2 original ID docs for signing off. (One must be either Passport, driving license, along with either: student card, domestic bill, company ID, or bankcard)
- You will then be Informed of next courses. A new volunteer scouter must complete all strands of “This is Scouting” (incl. “Being a Scouter”) before been fully integrated into the scout group.
