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.
