I have been asked by the Scout Association to give guidance on how to incorporate inclusive learning an teaching in to their training scheme to meet the needs of the leaders who come from diverse backgrounds.
The Scout Association is part of a worldwide educational youth movement. The values, which underpin and inspire its work are embodied in the Scout Promise and Law and in the Purpose of the Association. Within this framework, the Association is committed to equality of opportunity for all members.
To carry out its work the Association seeks to appoint effective and appropriate Leaders, and to involve other volunteers in supporting roles, all of whom are required to accept fully the responsibilities of their commitment.
The Scout Association equal Opportunities Policy;
"equal opportunities for all; no person volunteering their services should receive less favourable treatment on the basis of, nor suffer disadvantage by reason of: • age; • class; • ethnic origin, nationality (or statelessness) or race; • gender; • marital or sexual status; • mental or physical ability; • political or religious belief."

In today's society, we live in a multi cultural environment. This effects the local communities and this impacts on education and training. Organisations now have multi ethnic work forces, covering a wide range religious beliefs, nationalities and races. Cultures and attitudes have changed over the last 50 years and in today's society, you have mixed gender organisations , more openness sexual status changes in employment laws and
