Scouting and Employability
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.
