8. Your induction

Congratulations – you are almost through the appointment process and are ready to get stuck into your role!

We know that there is a lot to take in when starting Scouting as an adult either for the first time or when changing roles/Groups and we are keen that you are well supported through your first few months in particular.  Where to find resources; how to navigate processes and systems; where equipment is kept; and making contacts across your Group/District; are just some questions you may have.

Induction Mentor

Each new volunteer will be appointed an Induction Mentor  from within their Group. Your Mentor is a friendly face, who is on hand to answer questions; offer advice and guidance; support you with your Getting Started training modules; and signpost you to resources and contacts.

Your Mentor will run through an Induction Checklist with you to ensure you have key areas covered and know where to ask for help.

If at any point you have any queries or concerns please contact your Induction Mentor or GSL for support.  They will be happy to help you find what you are looking for or explain how Scouting processes work.

Please speak to your Group Scout Leader and/or Appointments Secretary to find out who your Induction Mentor is.
