Training Team Update

Having taken responsibility for the management of training in Solihull on 1st January I have been working to build a team who will operate in Solihull. Presently we have John Cheshire who has agreed to the role of Local Training Manager for Cole district. John will be responsible for ensuring that leaders in Cole district who are undergoing woodbadge training and validation have their progress monitored. Linda Skingsley has agreed to be County Training Administrator and will be responsible for the updating of leaders training records following validation. Linda will be working with Dawn Tullett who will be ensuring that new leaders are entered onto the database of training and liaising with the district and county appointments advisory committees. Eventually Dawn will administer training course bookings.
All young leader training will be the joint responsibility of Michael Sarjeant and Jill Bowman, who have been working together for some time to provide this facility.
We are in the process of planning specific training sessions for Solihull leaders but in the meantime leaders should consider the training courses offered by Coventry which can be booked through Pat Read on and the validation sessions held at The Retreat, Rough Close Campsite.
This information will be updated during the next few months as the team becomes established and plan opportunities in Solihull.
For a list of current training opportunities please check the county website
