Trustee Introduction Training 

Trustee Introduction is great training for all adults involved in Executive Committees at Scouts. It provides information on your role in managing a charity with information on your legal responsibilities and current regulations.

It’s independent learning, so you don’t have to attend a course to complete it.  

Who should complete the training?

All volunteers who are part of an Executive Committee in Scouts need to complete this training. This includes Group Scout Leaders, District Commissioners, County/Area/ Region (Scotland) Commissioners who are ex-officio members. As well as Section Leaders if you have opted in. 

You can check the Appointments: Table 2 document which lists all roles and their training requirements to see if you are required to complete it. 

What does this training include?

There are three lessons in the module and an assessment at the end. You’ll need to score 100% in the assessment to unlock the certificate of completion. 

What are the training objectives? 

By doing this e-learning, you’ll: 

  • Understand Executive Committee and trusteeship in Scouts
  • Understand Scouts’ key policies
  • Understand the roles and responsibilities of Executive Committee members and trustees in Scouts
