Following the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) in May 2018, Scout HQ introduced a new mandatory training module on the subject.
While new volunteers have this module automatically added to the Getting Started set of modules they need to complete, existing leaders need to have the module added to their Compass record manually by either their training adviser or Assistant District Commissioner (Adult Training). Please take the time to check whether your Compass record is up to date for this module and any other training.
The GDPR module is only available as online training (https://members.scouts.org.uk/supportresources/4800) and it does not take long to complete (20-30mins). The completion certificate produced should be sent to your Training Advisor or ADC (Adult Training) so that they can validate the module on your Compass record.
Thank you very much if you have already completed this module and had your training record updated. However, if you have still to do this module, it needs to be completed by 31 December 2018.
