I’m Karen, and I currently hold the roles of County Leadership Qualification (LQ) Coordinator and Mentor Coordinator.

As LQ Coordinator I keep an eye on new leaders starting out on their guiding adventure and current leaders adding a section to their qualification or maybe taking on the Unit Leader role. I work with a team of lovely ladies who match Leaders in Training with local Mentors, and we try to ensure that the LQ process is a happy experience for all involved.

As Mentor Coordinator I help our Mentors stay up to date with guiding policies and information and arrange socials.

I need a Mentor!

Here you will find the Mentor Request Form. You will need a mentor to complete the Leadership Qualification. 

We've kept the information we request from you to a minimum and when the form is completed it's pinged straight to Karen and the process begins.

Being a perfect match

Nervous about that first meeting with your mentee. First introductions, they matter!

If your mentee has completed her YL Qualification see what evidence can be used for her LQ.
