Executive Members Training

Executive Committee Members are elected, nominated or co-opted on an annual basis. However, you only need to complete your training once!

Becoming an Executive Member

The first step after becoming an Executive Member is to become registered with both The Scout Association and Charity Commissioner. Speak to your secretary to organise this.

Step 2 is to complete a DBS (Disclosure and Barring check) with your Leader/Chair, or the nominated person they direct you to! For this, the person will check your I.D, and you will be asked to make a declaration regarding your past history.


Initially you will need to complete you Getting Started Training, specifically these modules:

  • Essential Information (01)
  • Trustee Introduction
  • Safety
  • Safeguarding
  • GDPR

Once you have completed each module, please send the certificates to your Leader/Chair. You have 5 months from your role start date to complete these e-learning modules.
