Established in 2006 as the Victorian Rover Training Team, Rover Training Victoria is the group of Rovers and Rover Advisors who develop, promote and deliver Rover Training courses.
We work under the auspices of the National Training Team, with the support of the State Training Council to promote the practise of Rovers training Rovers - with the help of Rover Advisors and Booted Rovers.
Our aim is to increase attendance at all Rover training courses and ultimately the number of Rovers who have their Rover Woodbadge. Rover Training Victoria is also available to assist with workshops at Region Gatherings, and
We’re always looking for people who are able to help out with Rover Training, some of the roles we need assistance with are:
- Promotions & Marketing
- Basic-level Mentors
- Advanced-level PLAs
- Course tutors
- Technical Skills assessors
- Intro Seminar Presenters
- Basic Course Session Presenters
- Advanced Course Session Presenters
- Content writers/reviewers
- Course Managers
- Course Leaders
Why do we do all these different things? Because we have fun! We enjoy helping the new generation of Rovers get skilled up and become ready to run our Section.
We expect all of our members to hold a Woodbadge and to have done Rover Advanced & PLA training, or be working towards that level.
The requirements for Rovers wishing to join us is to have completed Rover Basic training and to commit to a development plan on completing the rest of the requirements. (Don't worry, we'll help you with that!)
Who do I contact for more information?
Anyone from our team!
Scattered throughout Victoria are people fulfiling the role of Training Mentor. Some of them are appointed Personal Leader Advisors, but others are wise Rovers and RAs who have been through Basic or Advanced Training and are happy to help others to make sense of the training workbooks and course prerequisites.
They aren't just people who are part of the Rover Training Team, you can find them all throughout Victorian Rovers. Think of them as like your Sponsor, they are there to help you get to a goal.
Our Training Mentors are enthusiastic about Rover Training, and while they might not know all the answers to all of your training questions, they do know where to find them!
