Adult volunteers are at the heart of Scouting, and we hope that you will get every bit as much out of it as you put in. Scouting is not only about young people, but also about the development of adults within the Movement.
The Devon Scouts Training pages is where you’ll find the latest information as it becomes available. Support is given here for new and existing leaders

This training is to renewed at least every 3 years, and you are to remain up to date with these modules

First Aid

Due to COVID-19, Scouting have deemed face to face First Response and First Aid Courses to be too risky to be run for Scouting Volunteers and therefore all First Aid Certificates in date in March 2020 will have a 6-month extension once Scouting returns to “Green”. In Devon, for those whose First Aid certificate expired before March 2020 the theory is being taught online, and a practical course will need to be completed within 6-month of Scouting returning to “Green”. Specifically

  • for those volunteers whose First Response ran out after 1/9/2019 can 
    • complete the e-learning First Response Theory Session (“Full Refresher” Certificate, NOT recorded in PLP or M.O.G.L section in Compass), 
    • complete a Practical Validation Session within 6 months of Scouting Readiness being “Green”, 
    • Training then recorded on Compass
  • those volunteers whose First Response ran out between 1/9/2016 and 1/9/2019 can 
    • complete the e-learning First Response Theory Session (“Part Refresher” Certificate issued, NOT recorded in PLP or M.O.G.L section in Compass), 
    • complete the Zoom “Theory Plus” Session (“Full Theory” Certificate to be issued, still NOT recorded in PLP or M.O.G.L section on Compass).
    • complete a Practical Validation Session within 6 months of “Green”,
    • Training then recorded on Compass
  • those volunteers whose First Response ran out before 1/9/2016, or those without a certificate, can 
    • attend a full Traditional First Response Course, within 6 months of “Green”.
