The White Field Explorer Unit
This module is compulsory for all Young Leaders and must be completed within three months of becoming a Young Leader. It covers key areas which every Young Leader will need to know:
- Purpose and Method of The Scout Association
- Child protection
- Policy, Organisation and Rules (POR)
- Activity rules and safety
- Understanding the role of the Young Leader and where they fit in the overall organisational structure
A Young Leaders’ Badge and woggle should be awarded after completing Module A. This badge signifies that a Young Leader has completed their basic training.
Once you have completed Module A you will be awarded the Young Leader badge and woggle for your uniform. All of these modules can count towards the training element of your Scout badges and Duke of Edinburgh Award.
The Scout Association has produced a Young Leader's Scheme log book which can help track your training and development.
