All adults involved in Scouting and involved with either a uniformed role or serving on Group or District Executive roles will need to undergo training. The level of training required depends on the appointment and is modular based.
We need your help in making Scotland more compliant, in terms of our Safety and Safeguarding rules. Young people's safety must be our primary concern, at all times, but a significant number of our adults are not completing Module 1, 3 or 4 along with the GDPR, Safety and Safeguarding modules, within the prescribed times. It's really important that everyone is up to date with this training. If there is likely to be any delay in being able to attend a course, then use the online training. And of course, please ensure it is marked up on Compass!https://www.scouts.scot/members/training/scoutin/
The Scouts Scotland site is the key page for information on training and validation. Scroll down to 'Links to online learning' then select your role. This will lead to links to 'Scouts UK Training'.
The "Leaders' training guide" and the "Personal learning plan" are the main documents to download for planning your training.
For details of all local training courses, check the Regional Facebook page under 'Files' For further details contact the Organiser for the event. Catherine-Ann Ness is the District Adult Training Advisor who should be contacted to go on any course.

Some of the training events, notable outdoor pursuits, are run by the Lochore Outdoor Education Centre run by Fife Council. On this site, you can download a PDF file detailing all their courses.
Although fees are payable for these courses, Fife Council may give 1/3 as a grant on application from leaders who will use the skills learned for the benefit of young persons. In the same way, the SHQ Developement Fund may offer another 1/3. The East Scotland Region may pick up the remaining costs. Note: Application for any funding must be made and granted before the course starts, so apply in good time.
