Get Ahead

Even though you might not realise it yet, your experience in Scouting has helped you to develop a whole range of important skills that higher education establishments and employers are looking for. Whether you are applying for jobs, college, university or apprenticeships, competition is higher than ever. The skills you will have developed through Scouting, including teamwork, interpersonal skills and decision-making, will help to set you apart from the crowd.

This guide is designed to help you express the experiences and activities you do through Scouting in a way that employers and admissions tutors will understand. To do this, you need to identify which important life skills you have developed. Even though people in Scouting will understand that being a Young Leader requires a range of skills from teamwork to time management, employers and admissions tutors may not. This guide will help you to make the connections for them.
