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 pleased to let you know that we’re providing some online training for:

  • n:fluence 18+ (begins 15 May)
  • Life to the Full refresher (17 May)
  • Train the Trainer (30 May)
  • Residential Events refresher (6 June)
  • n:fluence 18+ Team Leader module (24 June)

Each session will have limited spaces so you will need to book fast. Bookings will close 2 days before each session. The training includes a cost of £15 for n:fluence training and £5 for Life to the full and Residential Events training, payable via Eventbrite at the time of booking.

n:fluence 18+ – Join our knowledgeable trainers as they go through the various elements of the n:fluence 18+ resource to enable you to be registered as a GB leader. Great for helpers wishing to progress in their role, Advanced Young Leaders who’ve turned 18 and are ready to become leaders, people who are new to GB, or current GB leaders who feel a refresher would benefit them. n:fluence 18+ induction packs are available to pre-order for £17.50 – these are recommended for all new GB leaders.

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.
