*****  If you are doing your LQ and can’t see your mentor virtually, Libby can put you in touch with someone to chat through any elements. *****

The Leadership Qualification (LQ) is for women who would like to become leaders working with the girls in a unit.

Young Leaders can start working on the LQ from the age of 16 and can become leaders from the age of 18.

Whichever section appeals most, whether Rainbows, Brownies, Guides or Rangers, the LQ will develop your skills and experience to help you deliver guiding that is fun, girl led and engaging for the girls and young women in your unit.

The LQ is competency based, which means that you learn as you go along. You will also have a personal Mentor to help you through the Qualification. Our county run special evenings called LQ Get Togethers where you can spend time working with a mentor and take part in useful, fun activities to help you with your unit meetings.

More information on the Leadership Qualification can be found here.

For Mentors

What is the purpose of this role?
To support a fellow volunteer in their training towards a Girlguiding qualification, for example the Leadership Qualification. A Mentor will be matched with a member completing a qualification and will be responsible for supporting them through their qualification, ultimately deciding when they are qualified.

Do I need a qualification?
A Mentor must hold, and have current or recent experience of, the qualification she is mentoring for.

County have put together a pack for everyone who is currently a mentor and for those who wish to become mentors in the future. You will find the documents here:
