Safety Training

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 (as recorded on Compass) and then kept up to date. It is required to be renewed every three years. 

It’s independent learning, so you don’t have to attend a course to complete it.  


Safeguarding Training

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. 

It’s independent learning, so you don’t have to attend a course to complete it.
