A Safe Space – for all members

Firstly we would to say a big thank you to all of our members that have accessed A Safe Space training, you’re all helping to keep our members safe.

For those of you that haven’t managed to get your training up to date, there is still time.

Next week you will receive an email from HQ because the compliance date is fast approaching so here’s what you can do to play your part.

Everyone on GO must do the Level 1 e-learning  just make sure you add your membership number at the end so that it shows on GO that you’ve completed it. It takes 20 minutes and helps you understand the code of conduct.

Lots of our members also need Level 2, which you can also do by completing an e-learning. This level focuses on risk assessment, an essential skill within Girlguiding and again can be done in just 20 minutes.

If your role requires you to complete Level 3 you’ll be able to do a live online training from Mid-September and bookings will be opening on Friday 4 September.  Find them on the Girlguiding Anglia website. You might also be able to apply for RPL if you are a designated safeguarding lead in your work role, read the guidance and apply with your evidence by emailing safespace@girlguiding-anglia.org.uk.

Levels 1, 2 and 3 each last for 3 years and you will be automatically reminded about renewal 6 months before each one runs out.

Anyone requiring Level 4 will have been directly emailed by HQ and Girlguiding Anglia, please reply and ensure you’ve booked onto one of the sessions.

If you are not sure what level you need please check here or contact your district commissioner for advice.

Our trainers are working very hard to bring you lots of Level 3 sessions until the end of 2020 (well, mid-December) and deserve our thanks for the extra mile they are all going to keep guiding safe.

 

Thank you.
