Personal Leader Advisers (PLAs)
Trainee Leaders progress through the Scouts Australia Adult Development and Training program attending courses, completing e-learning modules and engaging in in-service technical skills and tasks.
An important part of this training program is the mentoring of Trainee Leaders as they undertake this training.
During the completion of the A1 Adult Member Application a Trainee Leader is asked to select a mentor/PLA who is then allocated to them in the MyScout system.
As a trainee completes training milestones the PLA will receive advice and be able to provide active engagement with an individual trainee regarding their progress.
Selecting a PLA
All new (trainee) Leaders to Scouting must nominate a PLA as part of the initial paperwork to register as a Leader.
To view a listing of current PLAs, select a section from the listing below. You need to select a PLA from the section you are currently working with. Your Group Leader or Line Manager will be able to assist you with this selection.
A PLA may be changed at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your membership details and the details of the PLA you wish to have assigned to you.
What is a PLA?
A PLA (Personal Leader Adviser) is an active Leader who has completed a PLA course and been appointed by the Assistant Chief Commissioner (Leader Development) to act in this capacity as an adviser and mentor to Trainee Leaders.
