Training and Enrichment for Adult Members (TEAM)

The TEAM program supports adult Members by offering five role-based learning streams:

Unit Guider
District Commissioner
Outdoor Activity Leader (OAL)

Each stream includes several Foundation modules (i.e. as a Unit Guider, her modules are About the Girl, Programming for the Girl and Quick Start for each branch level, plus leadership skills Putting the Pieces Together). A TEAM pin of the appropriate colour is awarded upon completion of the Foundation modules. 18 additional Enrichment modules are available to everyone (e.g. Building Strong Teams, Communicating with Girls, Conflict Management, Event Planning, Financial Management, Leading Active Games, Girls United and many more). A yellow Enrichment pin is awarded on completion of any five Enrichment modules.

Which trainings are mandatory for all Guiders?

Safe Guide training is mandatory within your first 6 months of joining. All other training is optional, but we recommend New Guider training for new adult members working in a unit. Contact your local training adviser or visit the National website for more information about training opportunities and available delivery methods.

How do I become a trainer?

Contact your Area Training Adviser to get connected with the right resources. You will need to submit a Trainer Candidate application form to your Area Training Adviser, and complete the "Understanding the Adult Learner" and the Trainer Stream modules (see TEAM Chart, above). BC offers the "Understanding the Adult Learner" and the five Trainer Stream modules at a weekend workshop called "Road to Dynamic Presentations".

Training via E-Learning

E-Learning is accessed with your computer or other device via the internet. You can access the modules and training materials whenever you want and work at your own speed. There is a small fee for each module which can be paid by credit card or by pre-paid promotional incentive number (PIN). To obtain a PIN contact your Area Training Adviser or Area Commissioner who will submit the request to the provincial office. Instructions will then be emailed directly to you. If you use your credit card the fee may then charged back to your unit or District, check your local financial standards.
