5 reasons to come along to the Scottish Roadshow!
Our Scottish Roadshow’s stopping off in Inverness, Stirling, Aberdeen, Prestwick, Glasgow and Edinburgh and all the events are open to volunteers of all ages across Scotland. You’ll get lots of training and useful tips to help you in your role and get answers to all of your burning questions. Here are 5 reasons to come along to one of the roadshows taking place throughout the year.
Gather at the gathering space
Help your girls get the most out of the new programme themes by stopping by the gathering space. You’ll find out more about internal and external partnerships available to members that can help support girls in their journey towards gaining their theme awards. The Scottish outdoor and international teams will also be on hand to talk about the exciting opportunities open to all members keen.
From the Forest Challenge to Citizen Girl, there will also be an opportunity to explore our exciting range of challenge badges and so much more.
Living for the living library
Check out the living library for your chance to chat to advisers about everything from flexible guiding opportunities and GDPR to A Safe Space updates, as well as more information for those working on Level 2, and getting the most out of Peer Education.
Sign up for the training session of your choice
There’s going to be specialised training sessions on offer to sign up for on the day. So if you’d like to get to grips with the new programme, discover activities to help girls understand the Promise, or grow your volunteer team then just sign up when you arrive.
Many of the training sessions will count towards gaining your Leadership qualification. If you book you’ll receive an email nearer the time of the event you’re attending with more information about the sessions so you can start making your choice ahead of time.
Network, network, network!
The Scottish Roadshow events will give you the space to swap ideas, trade tips and meet other volunteers, trainers and advisers from all over Scotland. There’s even going to be a coffee stop chill-out zone and a pop-up shop on site where you can check out all the latest Girlguiding goodies.
