Training &
Support

Everything you need, and more.

Welcome to our Training and Support pages. We hope you find this space useful, find the answers to any questions you may have, and - most importantly - be here to support you.

Interactive Learning Packs

Our packs are handy little snippets of the key information you need to get started and provide links to additional training material and support.

Training Resources Guide

This pack introduces the training required by all new members and by Leaders working on their Wood Badge modules.

Using Compass

Compass is the Scout Association’s database of volunteers. This Pack helps you to manage your profile, keep your details up to date and make sure you receive information relevant to your role.

Office Quick Start Pack

Devon County Scouts have a free charity license with Microsoft Office 365. We can use this to create files in the usual Microsoft programmes - Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook etc and share them with other volunteers in scouting. And we encourage all our volunteers to set up a @devonscouts email address.

This pack offers a brief overview of Office 365 and its services to get you started.
