Safety Training

Who needs this course?

As an adult in GLMW we all have the responsibility to ensure we have adequate training and that safeguards are in place to promote the safety and well-being of young people and other adult volunteers. The Safety Training course is available to all adult volunteers in any role and will promote safety in all aspects of Scouting including; Section meetings, activities and residential experiences

What does the course cover?

This course builds on the learning covered in Module 1 and will support adults to learn how to ensure we deliver safe scouting to everyone. The course is delivered in a group format which enables participants to share practice, discuss concerns and learn from one another in a safe learning environment. The course covers many areas including:

  • Understanding our Safety Policy
  • Risk Assessments
  • What is Safety in the Scouting context?
  • Who is responsible for different areas of Safety?

The course that we deliver and recommend through GLMW takes only 2 hours and will help all adults understand their role in providing safe scouting.
