Digital skills ‘how to’ webinars

Delivered in collaboration with Barclays’ Digital Eagles and Scouts

Support your virtual guiding by brushing up on some digital skills

While we wait for all units to be able to return to face-to-face guiding, lots of our volunteers have used our newly developed virtual activities to host meetings online.

However, we know that lots of volunteers aren’t familiar with the technology required, and don’t feel confident in how to use it. To support you to host fun and successful virtual unit meetings over the summer , we’re running a series of digital skills webinars delivered by Barclays’ Digital Eagles team.

You’ll be shown the basics of how to set up and run a meeting, as well as tips and tricks for making the most of all the features on Zoom and Google Meet.

As we start to transition back to face to face meetings, it is still important to understand how to use these skills. You might want to apply a mixed approach to offline and online guiding, as it will allow you to keep in touch with all members, including those who may still be shielding. It is also a great way of checking in with other volunteers, or even running AGMs. This training will also set you up with the skills you need to run virtual unit meetings if Covid-19 guidelines become stricter, with more regional lockdowns imposed. 

The links below take you to registration forms hosted by the Scouts. You will be contacted just before the webinar to remind you it’s coming up and afterwards to follow up once you have submitted the form. Girlguiding will receive the data from the Scouts after the webinars. The webinars will be recorded and shared online afterwards.

For further information on how and why Girlguiding use your personal data, including how long we keep it, your rights, and how you can contact us, please read our full privacy notice.
