Learning and Development

Welcome to our learning and development page for Girlguiding Somerset volunteers. The learning and development team coordinate a range of different training events – including short evening sessions; day sessions; and residential training weekends on behalf of the County. We have a small team of Girlguiding qualified trainers here in Somerset; but we are delighted to invite other trainers and facilitators from Girlguiding and beyond to help deliver the sessions.

If you have a learning and development question, or if you have a suggestion for future sessions, please contact us using the form at the bottom of the page.

Save the date: Saturday 14th March 2020 – a Residential Skills day, with training sessions designed to help you work towards modules of the Going Away With scheme; as well as some practical, hands on sessions. More details to follow.

Resident Training Event Survey

Have you ever thought about attending a residential training event run by Girlguiding Somerset? Here in the Learning and Development team we would like to hear your views – tell us whether or not you would consider coming along; how much time you’d could spare; what type of venue would you like us to use; and what time of the year would be best. If you wouldn’t ever attend a residential training event, that’s fine – please just share with us why not. All responses are anonymous – we are simply trying to make sure we provide you with the best learning and development opportunities, that work for you.
