Leadership skills offer from The British Army

We're pleased to offer you the opportunity to invite female soldiers into your unit to help complete your Skills Builder resources.

Note: Due to significant interest in this opportunity we have closed submissions for the time being. This is so that the British Army can focus on fulfilling the submissions they have already received so far. Keep an eye on our Facebook for further updates!

Did you know the British Army sponsor the new Girlguiding skills builder resource - Skills For My Future - Lead - Stages 1 to 6? Now you have the opportunity to invite a female soldier from the British Army into your unit to help you run these sessions.

If you'd like to take up this offer, please fill out the form below. Your details will then be forwarded to a member of the engagement team at the British Army who will put you in touch with a local representative. It will then be down to you both to find a suitable day to run the activity.

Please note:

  • Whilst we will make every effort to fulfil your invite request, we can't guarantee that a female soldier will be available in your local area.
  • This opportunity is only available for Guide and Ranger units completing skills builders - Skills For My Future - Lead - Stages 4 to 6.

The British Army will not bring weapons or recruitment literature into your unit meeting or encourage girls to make applications to join or wear military uniform. This engagement activity aims to share leadership skills and build stronger community connections.
