The Wood Badge and Module 2

All volunteers with Section Leader and Assistant Section Leader roles need to complete the Scout Association's Training Scheme within 3 years of starting their roles.  This is known as the Wood Badge, or Wood Beads and its done by completing a series of modules. Modules can either be completed at organised events, or there are other methods, such as e-learning and workbooks - or you might know the subject well enough to not need to do the course at all.  Once you have completed a module, you need to discuss how you might use the content of the module with a training advisor - this is called Validation.  

Before you start your Woodbadge, you need to complete Module 2 - which is really about agreeing what learning you need to do.   We've made a video below that explains it and then you can complete your Module 2 template and email it to
