To revisit the rules, guidance and responsibilities related to safety in Scouting.

The training is available to anyone who wants to complete it.

However, it is required by all roles recorded in Table 2: Appointments as requiring an Appointments Review, together with all Trustees/Executive Member roles. Safety training must be completed within 5 years of the role start date recorded on Compass [this initial safety training will normally be undertaken as part of Module 1]. Thereafter, for as long as the adult is in a role that requires an Appointment Review or is a Trustee role, the training must be undertaken again no later than 5 years after their last recorded Safety training completion date on Compass.


There are three sections within the training:

  • Get the facts
  • See it in action
  • Take the challenge
