What is Pro-Badge?
Pro-Badge is an Activity Badge Training Scheme, which uses the resources of the Solent Scout Training Centre at Lyons Copse, to the best advantage of the Cub Scouts, Scouts, Explorer Scouts and Scout Leaders. The scheme provides training for badges that require predominantly outdoor Scouting activity or natural resources.

The aims of the scheme are fourfold:

  1. To help overworked and inexperienced Leaders with the training of their Cubs, Scouts, and Explorers so that both they and their Leaders may learn, and obtain training otherwise out of their reach.
  2. To provide a constantly high level of training that is otherwise unavailable to some Cubs, Scouts or Explorers.
  3. To use the local training centre to its fullest extent, especially during the Autumn and Winter.
  4. To provide a pool of specialist equipment needed for each badge. Individual Groups would not normally possess such equipment.
