Our safeguarding training ensures that volunteers offer girls a safe space where they can have fun, learn and grow.
For all volunteers including occasional helpers, GO coordinators, home contacts, peer educators and young leaders. People visiting units more than once should be asked to complete the Level 1 A Safe Space training. As we cannot log or enforce this training until someone is a registered volunteer on GO there is no need to ask for proof of completion. People visiting a unit once do not need to be asked to complete the Level 1 A Safe Space training but if returning, please do ensure they are aware of the importance of understanding and implementing our safeguarding practice.
For leaders, assistant leaders, unit helpers, leaders in training, young leaders, peer educators, those attending residential events and those that need level 3 and 4.
As we have come to the end of term, we haven’t got any Safe Space Level 3 or 4 dates available at the moment. You’ll still find dates for sessions via the Girlguiding Learning Platform – there’s info about the UK webinars but also links to the other country/region dates. We will be releasing new dates nearer the end of July for August and September, all of these dates will only be bookable via the Learning Platform. If you have any questions, please let us know.
Your GO record will show you’ve done it and six months before it is due to expire you will be sent a reminder that you need to redo the training. Levels 1-3 need redoing every three years and every five years for Level 4, to make sure everyone is up to date and able to keep safeguarding and spotting concerns at the front of their mind.
