Mandatory Ongoing Training

Ensuring we provide safe scouting

First Response

First response training must be completed in person. Access to courses is provided through South Yorkshire County and the First Response Coordinator. The course must be completed as a 6 hour session initially, followed by 3 yearly refresher courses (maximum of 2 before a full course is required again). Holders of a valid full paediatric first aid certificate may be exempt from completing this course but would need to speak to the First Response Coordinator to confirm – ashley.horsley@syscouts.org.uk

Safety

The Scout Association offers a number of pieces of training containing information to help deliver and manage safe Scouting. You will first come across safety content in Essential Information as part of your induction and then in Running Safe Activities for Section Leaders or the Safety module of the Managers and Supporters training. All adults are required to undertake the ongoing safety training every three years. Upon completion of the e-learning you will get a certificate that needs to be forwarded to the Group Scout Leader.

Additionally, to aid remembering Safety please carry and use the Purple Card.
