This one day course combines three modules which are mandatory for section leaders. You’ll spend the day working with other adults to understand how we can better support the young people in our sections.
Module 14 (Supporting Young People) aims to enable adult volunteers working with young people to understand and meet their needs. The module covers the characteristics and development of young people, external influences on young people, how to create a supportive environment for young people and how to respond to issues affecting young people.
Module 15 (Promoting Positive Behaviour) aims to enable adult volunteers to proactively promote positive behaviour and appropriately manage challenging behaviour in their section. The module covers defining challenging behaviour, planning for positive behaviour, responding to challenging behaviour and where to source additional help and support for challenging behaviour.
Module 18 (Practical Skills) aims to enable adults to gain and develop practical skills for the benefit of the young people in their Section. The module covers how to train, coach or otherwise help young people and adults develop practical skills. It requires participants to gain at least two new practical skills of their own.
