Validation evenings / days

Validation is an important step in achieving your Wood Badge.

Validation is the process of finding out if you are able to put the learning covered by a Module into practice in your role in Scouting. All modules for your role need to be validated regardless of whether you have gained the skills and knowledge from previous experience or by planned learning.

Each module has a fixed requirement. There are is also a number of validation methods you can select from. Validation methods should be simple and effective and should always be something that you do as part of your normal role. The focus should be on you ‘doing something’ and this will often be backed up by discussion. Validation should not be seen as an exam – it is a positive experience in which you receives supportive feedback.

You should bring any evidence you have to show and discuss with you.

You can find out more about Validation in our training guide which you can download from here.

 

Please click on the date of the Validation day/night you want to attend to go through to our booking page for that event.
 
Please note the venue of each Validation event.

Once you book onto a Validation event you will be offered a time slot for you to come along and speak to a Training Adviser who will go through your completed training for Validation. If you would like a certain time please email Reina O'Brien at office@southlondonscouts.org.uk and she will allocate times on a first come first served basis.

If you have any question about the Validation process please speak to your Line Manager or contact your District's Local Training Manager who will be able to help you.
