Coronavirus (COVID-19) - We are currently in the Yellow Readiness Level, which means face to face activities can resume outdoors and indoors with an approved Risk Assessment. For the latest updates, please check out our dedicated page by clicking Here!

TRAINING SUPPORT – PERSONAL SUPPORT

Bury & Ramsbottom has a number of Training Advisers.   They can provide ongoing 1-2-1 training support to you from start of role to Wood Badge.

Please talk to your GSL and/or ltm@brscouts.org.uk to get a Training Adviser (TA) assigned.  Your TA will then be in touch to help you through your training.

TRAINING SUPPORT – ONLINE ZOOM VALIDATIONS

In addition to the above, there will be regular Zoom Validation sessions, run by the LTM: 

  • There will be sessions each week for new leaders who have not completed their Getting Started validations (these sessions are aimed for between 1 to 4 leaders)
  • Once a month there will a session for anyone who is unable to complete their Compliance Training using the online training (remember you cannot return to scouting, in any role, without a valid up-to-date safeguarding and safety training)
  • Once very quarter there will a session on the Trustee Modules for Execs
  • There will be regular sessions for wood badge module validations.
  • They will run on different nights – as I know that different groups / sections meet on different evenings.
  • The sessions will start at 7pm and last for around an hour
  • All leaders who still require the module(s) in question will be sent the invite, zoom details and any background reading ahead of the session

TRAINING SUPPORT – COUNTY

First Aid training has been difficult to arrange during COVID.

There are now 2 parts to

  • First Aid Mod 10a (theory) – County are setting up Online training sessions.
  • First Aid Mod 10b (practical) – County will arrange these sessions when training can be provided face to face again.

You need to have 1 fully qualified first aid volunteer at any face-to-face Scout Activity.

Given the current situation, if your First Aid training has expired, you only need complete Mod 10a to be a valid First Aider for a face-to-face meeting.

Other courses at County – When we can meet face to face again, there should also be some Fast Track Wood Badge Training available.

Don’t forget to check the County Training Website for any upcoming courses:  HOME | GMN Scouts Training
