Adult Training

The Scout Association’s Adult Training Scheme is based around showing competence in role appropriate modules. There are a number of modules to complete however you only have to complete those relevant to your role.

Certain training is Mandatory with some ongoing, meaning you need to ensure they are completed at regular intervals. These modules are:

  • GDPR (Global Data Protection Regulations) – To be completed once only online
  • First Aid (First Response) – To be completed every 3 years, outside qualifications may be transferrable but speak to the training team
  • Safety – To be completed every 5 years
  • Safeguarding – To be completed every 5 years

Some advice for new adults starting their Scouting journey or existing adults can be found here: Scouting Volunteers Info
