Deputy Area Commissioner (Adult Support) and Area Training Manager

I’m Cathie.  I first joined the Area Team in 2011 as a Training Advisor.  I have been a Deputy Area Commissioner and the Area Training Manager since 2017 and I’m really pleased to be continuing in this role.  As well as being part of the Area Team, I am also an Assistant Scout Leader and I’ve also held a number of other roles since joining The Scout Movement.

Someone recently said that we’re happiest doing the things where the values are the same as our own values and that’s why I think I love Scouting so much.  My favourite Baden Powell quote is “Try and leave this world a little better than you found it, and when your turn comes to die, you can die happy in feeling that at any rate, you have not wasted your time but have done your best.”

Skills For Life isn’t just for our Young People, as adult volunteers we can grow and learn too.  Ensuring that leaders and supporters have the right skills to provide an awesome Scouting experience is important.  My aim is to have the training available for all Scouting volunteers and our future leaders and also to have the right level of support available so that we can deliver local Scouting safely with a programme that is varied and gives those Scouting skills.
