Our safeguarding training ensures that volunteers offer girls a safe space where they can have fun, learn and grow. Please note that all volunteers need to correct level of safe space training for their role by the end of 2020!
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.
At the moment we’re offering Level 3 and Level 4 training sessions online. To find out if you need this training for your role, and to secure your spot at an upcoming training sessions, head to the training section of our events page.
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.
