As a Training Adviser, your roles and responsibilities are set out in the Role Description

When creating a Personal Learning Plan (PLP) ensure that the correct training modules appear within the PLP for that role on Compass. If not, please add, amend or delet.

You should look to validate learning as soon as your learner is ready. This may be after attending a course, completing a workbook or e-learning.

If the learner has the knowledge and skills required for a specific module, you only need to validate that knowledge in a Scouting environment. Remember- Learning is Optional, Validation is Essential

Once validated, please update Compass as soon as possible. (For Blackdown District and Moors & Coastal District ONLY, you should also update the Somerset County Database). If you have any difficulties or queries with this, please contact your LTM.

When you have validated the final piece of learning i.e. Getting Started or Wood Badge, please advise your LTM so that they can undertake the required oversight and make arrangements, if appropriate, to recommend a Wood Badge to the County Training Manager.

Please remember, a Wood Badge can only be recommended once all required training has been completed and validated PLUS, the learner has a current First Aid Certificate and current Safeguarding, Safety Learning and completed the GDPR learning.
