Mandatory training and Working with Children Card

Mandatory Training
Every Adult Member and Supporter of Scouts Victoria (Rovers, Leaders, Fellowship, Honorary Commissioners, Office Bearers, Rostered Parents and Adult Helpers) must complete the following e-Learning Modules:
• Workplace Health and Safety (SP WHS).
• Child Safe Scouting (SP CHILD).
Within three months of starting their membership and then every three years.
Completion and refreshing of these modules must be completed as a condition of membership or undertaking an Adult Supporter role with Scouts Victoria.
Failure to complete these modules within three months of membership or appointment to a supporter role, will result in membership cancellation or removal of appointment.
This means that the individual is not permitted to participate, attend or be involved with Scout activities, properties or events. A parent or guardian dropping off or collecting their child from Scout activities is permitted, but involvement or participation is not permitted

Scouts Victoria requires every adult member to hold a Working with Children Card, regardless of the exemption provided by their occupation. This is to ensure that we are meeting our obligations under the Working with Children Check legislation.
