About the ELTC

The English Leader's Training Course (ELTC) is a 6-part course designed to get brand-new leaders up to speed with the basics of being a Happy Bee, Brownie or Guide leader. The course is run by Bauhinia's training team, with the support of HKGGA.


After attending a minimum of four unit meetings (we will connect you with a unit, if you don't yet have one), there are four face-to-face ELTC sessions, one online session and the final session is with your unit

There are short online quizzes to complete before some sessions (see below).

Session 1: The basics - Where? When? Who? Why? 

Session 2: The Promise and Law

Session 3: The 8-Point Programme

Session 4: Badges, Awards, Risk and Safety
