Scouts Australia Institute of Training

The Scouts Australia Institute of Training (SAIT) coordinates the training and development of Adult Leaders in all states and territories. The training system includes preliminary, basic, advanced and supplementary training in Scouting and the skills required to develop and lead young people, as well as integration assistance and support for the duration of the Leader’s appointment.

SAIT was launched in 2004 as a nationally accredited training organisation. SAIT currently offers courses from Certificate II to Diploma level in Leadership, which are recognised outside Scouts Australia and are transferable to other areas of education and business.

Each year Scouts Australia delivers more than 1,200 training programs to 10,000 Leaders and Members nationwide.

The SAIT provides support and accreditation to each of Scouts Australia’s State Branches to ensure effective delivery of the training program. The SAIT Office is a base for resource materials and training apparatus, and an Administration Officer provides regular contact with each Branch and responds to general inquiries and requests for current training materials and support. A Training Officer works to assist in the development of materials and to confirm the accountability requirements associated with the national accreditation process.

The National Commissioner for Adult Training and Development is a volunteer position responsible for the development and updating of curriculum and support materials to meet all the training needs of Leaders and some aspects of the youth program. This includes the Leader of Youth, Leader of Adults and Adventurous Activity components. The National Commissioner for Adult Training and Development works closely with the Branch Commissioners for Adult Training and Development in each State and Territory regarding the delivery of the training programs.

Currently, the National Commissioner for Adult Training and Development is Mr Elston Hynd.
