Online training for GB leaders


As a GB leader it’s great to be fully equipped/trained for activities we may do with our young people, or to be trained so that we can share our knowledge within our local area.

We’re providing sessions via Zoom for:

  • n:fluence 18+
  • GB Manager training
  • Residential Events refresher
  • Life to the Full refresher

Each session will have limited spaces so you will need to book on fast. Bookings will close 2 days before each session.

Costs vary for each course, please refer to the specific information for each course below for more information.

There are limited numbers on all sessions.

The sessions will be hosted on Zoom. On the day, please ensure that you’re logged into the Zoom call ready for the meeting to begin about 5-10 minutes before. Zoom is a really easy piece of software to use. Here is how you can download the software to your computer in advance. Or you can just click the link 15 minutes before the meeting and download it then. It’s best to use it with a laptop with a webcam. We’d love to ‘see’ you!

If you have any problems booking, please contact Eleanor.
