Keith Coote, Deputy County Commissioner (People) is pleased to announce the appointment of Barry Manley to the role of Local Training Manager to Eastern Norwich.
Barry brings with him a vast experience of scouting.
Barry says, ‘With 32 years’ experience, ranging from a Section Leader to County Commissioner in London, I have always enjoyed my training and advocate that leaders complete it to enable them to learn skills which will better enable them to carry out their roles. Recently retiring as a DC, I can at first hand identify where adult training availability can be improved. Leaders are not necessarily kept motivated and aware of what training and validation is available to them. My ultimate aim is to see every Leader complete their training and seen wearing their wood beads with pride and as a way of showing parents their qualification.’
If you think that this might be a role for you, we have vacancies in the following districts: East and Central Norfolk. Please feel free to contact me for further details and an informal chat where I can expand on the role requirements.
