Launching e-learning for leaders

Friday 21st January 2022

The Boys’ Brigade has today launched a new series of e-learning modules for its volunteer leaders.

Three e-learning modules have been launched to leaders across the country – Safeguarding, Managing Risk and Delivering a Quality Programme. The modules are accessed via the organisation’s membership system, Online Brigade Manager (OBM), and importantly will provide leaders with the flexibility to learn at a time and place of their convenience. A fourth module – Introduction to BB – will be launched next month, and these modules will become part of the process for new leaders joining the organisation.

Training for leaders has traditionally taken place face-to-face. However, as the organisation has adapted to the pandemic over the last 18 months, other ways of engaging, supporting and training leaders have been developed. Whilst the opportunities for people to come together and spend time in fellowship will always be important and can never be underestimated, having the flexibility of learning has many benefits and allows BB leaders to take ownership of their learning.

Jonathan Eales, Chief Executive of The Boys’ Brigade, commented:

“We have invested in e-learning as part of our current five-year strategy which focuses on improving the quality and consistency of experience for children and young people. A central part of this strategy is supporting and resourcing over 10,000 leaders to continually develop their skills and refresh their knowledge to ensure we offer a safe and caring environment for children and young people to learn, grow and discover.”
