Training

  • If you decide to become an Assistant Leader, you will work towards your Girlguiding Leadership Qualification. An Assistant Leader needs to complete three modules that cover: your role in the unit (specific to Rainbows); your role in Girlguiding; and safety and unit administration
  • While working towards the qualification you will hold the role of Leader in Training, and will be supported in your training by a Mentor, your local Commissioner and other Leaders in your local area.
  • Units are grouped together into local areas called Districts or Divisions, and all Leaders in the area are supported by a volunteer manager called a District or Division Commissioner.
