We’ve got the ideal training venues, offering all the facilities you require, in beautiful locations and at low cost.

Did you know there’s more than one way to enjoy training at our centres?

Your own training weekend – £99 per person

Choose us for your county training weekend at either Foxlease or Waddow Hall. Weekends are £99 per person and include two nights’ accommodation in shared bedrooms, two breakfasts, light lunches, evening meals, unlimited tea and coffee, and the use of training rooms and training equipment. We can help you find trainers for your weekend and cover their travel expenses.

We know that not everyone is able to give up their whole weekend, so we have a 24-hour option available. Or why not select to stay in one of our self-catering buildings if you’re on a limited budget?

Join our training weekends

As well as supporting you to organise your own training event, we offer a range of training weekends that you can attend on your own or with a group. These weekends are listed in our event schedule.

Bursaries for leader training

There are a variety of different bursaries available for our training opportunities. Don’t forget to check locally as there may also be support from your county, depending on the training.

New leader training bursary

When you complete your leadership qualification, your county will give you a £25 voucher towards any Girlguiding training at a national activity centre (Blackland Farm, Foxlease, Glenbrook, ICANDO and Waddow Hall) or at a regional activity centre (Broneirion, Hautbois and Lorne).

Adult leader training bursary

Counties can claim £50 per leader, for up to ten leaders, for county training weekends held at one of our national activity centres. And we have some leader training events supported by the bursary: for example, our Leaders’ Essentials Training at Foxlease. These are reduced by £50.

Friends of Waddow bursary

The Friends of Waddow offer a bursary for leaders to cover the full cost of attending any training or event at Waddow Hall that helps to develop a leader’s skills. This training can be organised by Waddow Hall or by a local county or region.
