Mandatory Ongoing Learning

Keeping our members safe

At The Scouts, the safety and safeguarding of young people (as well as our adult members) are our number one priority. That commitment to our parents and colleagues begins with training; so all our volunteers understand what’s required of them and have a good understanding of our policies, procedures and are equipped with the essential tools / information so that they can excel in their role. All roles have some form of training in one form or another, which all volunteers are obligated to complete within five months of commencing their role.

In addition to your initial training, there are two specific modules which must be kept up to date.


Safety

This safety training is designed to help you stay up-to-date on safety practice and your responsibilities as a member of Scouts.

Doing things safely is fundamental to everything we do in Scouting. The Safety training ensures that you understand your responsibilities for keeping everyone in Scouts safe and how to assess and manage risk.

It’s important that Safety training is completed within the first five months of your role start date (as recorded on Compass) and then kept up to date. It is required to be renewed every three years. 


Safeguarding

This safeguarding training is designed to help you stay up-to-date on safeguarding practice and your responsibilities as a member of Scouts.

As adults in Scouts, the safety of young people is our priority. The Safeguarding training ensures that you understand how to keep young people and adults safe in Scouts and includes how to recognise abuse and report concerns. 

It’s important that Safeguarding training is completed within the first five months of your role start date (as recorded on Compass) and then kept up to date. It is required to be renewed every three years. 


First Aid

This module aims to cover the skills and knowledge necessary to enable adults to manage an incident and provide basic first aid.

This module is renewable every three years.

There are currently no online training resources for this module, so the District Training Team will contact you with training options.
