About this opportunity

Victor Harbor Sea Scout group is a family focused scout group with programs full of fun, friendship, new skills and adventure. Today's Scouts can take part in an extraordinary variety of outdoor activities, from traditional scouting skills such as camping, bush craft, through to more extreme challenges such as abseiling, overnight hikes, canoeing, rock climbing, and even flying.

Our Group is also very active within the local community and is working hard to foster working partnership which will result in a number of long term improvements for both local community and local environment.

You are never to old to join the adventurous life of Scouting and we are currently seeking people who love to have fun, enjoy the outdoors, like learning new skills and enjoy helping young people; to join us as Sea Scout Leaders.

Sea Scout Leaders are responsible for helping to devise and deliver programs that support young people in reaching their potential.

Not only do Leaders help youth members develop valuable skills in an environment of responsible risk-taking, but they themselves develop a variety of skills in leadership, project management and event planning.

No prior experience is necessary to become a Scout Leader. All Leaders undergo training on all aspects of youth leadership, program planning, safety and other requirements. We can also provide resources of program ideas to help our Leaders get started.

Leaders are required to attend: • Group meetings one night a week during school terms • A monthly Leaders meeting • Group activities, such as hiking or camping trips, which take place a few weekends during the year

Through SAIT, Scouts Australia offers members the opportunity to earn nationally recognized qualifications from Cert II up to Diploma level. Qualifications can be earned in Business, Leadership and Management and Outdoor Recreation, and usually at a fraction of the cost of courses provided by other institutions.

Child safety is very important to Scouts. Therefore, along with training in child safety, adult members must undergo a standard Police check to ensure the safety of our youth members.

You will be required to obtain a National Police Clearance and DCSI (Scouts will pay for this upon application) Positive Attitude, Good Communication Skills, reliable and punctual.

Training and development of adult volunteers is compulsory to ensure that our Leaders have the necessary skills and knowledge to lead young people and other adults. While Leaders don’t need any prerequisite skills or knowledge prior to joining, they must be prepared to undertake our Leader Training. As in most National Scout Organisations, Scouts Australia operates a Wood Badge Training Program as a system for the training and development of all its Adult Leaders. We also operate the Scouts Australia Institute of Training, a registered training organisation, which offers a wide variety of courses in Leadership, Business, Management and Outdoor Recreation. Through this scheme, your Scouting qualifications can be externally accredited, so they are relevant and recognized in the professional world.
