Unless previously agreed please discuss courses BEFORE booking with GSL / AGSL and / or your Training Advisor.
A reminder that there are time scales for completing training / requirement for on-going learning, so here's a quick summary for you all to be aware of:
- Getting Started is modules 1 to 3 and needs to be completed and signed off by a TA within 5 months of joining (or adding / changing a role), and before you can be invested
- The remaining basic leadership modules (where relevant) are 4 to 19 and need to be completed and signed off by a TA within 3 years of joining (or adding / changing a role)
- Other modules are only required for certain roles (for example becoming a Training Advisor or a GSL)
- Once mandatory training is all signed off you then need to average 5 hours a year (in effect between review dates), and it works best if you log it all down as evidence - although some will / can be added to COMPASS. For example if you attend archery training or a fire course, join a District workshop session on anything from OSM to data protection etc.
It really is MUCH easier than it sounds but if you have any concerns or questions speak to any TA.
