Compliance Training Courses

In order to meet the leadership training requirements, several courses have been laid on in districts to meet the need for courses.  These are published below as they are received.  Bear in mind that priority for places may be for those districts first.

CORONAVIRUS - First Aid Courses and other face-2-face courses are all cancelled until further notice.  Essential Information (Module1), GDPR, Trustee Induction, Safety & Safeguarding may all be done on-line. See below for details.

Essential Information Training (Module 1)

Essential Information is great training for all adults involved in Scouts as it provides information on Scouts history, our fundamentals such as the Promise and Law, how to keep everyone safe and more about our structure and how Scouts are inclusive. 

It’s independent learning, so you don’t have to attend a course to complete it.   Almost all volunteers in Scouts need to complete this training. You can check the Appointments: Table 2 document which lists all roles and their training requirements to see if you are required to complete it.

With the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulations, HQ have developed a new e-learning module that is compulsory for all adults to complete.

If you are a new leader or Executive Committee member, this is now part of your Getting Started training which must be completed within 5 months of your appointment.

Once the e-learning has been completed, please show the certificate to your Training Adviser or send a copy to your Local Training Manager so your Compass profile can be updated accordingly.

The e-learning can be found by clicking this link.
