A Safe Space Training

As a Girlguiding volunteer you share an important responsibility to protect and promote the safety and wellbeing of our members.

By the end of 2020 all volunteers are required to have the correct level of A Safe Space training for their role.

Who needs to do what:

• A Safe Space, Level 1 – An introduction
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. Anyone completing the eLearning can download and save or print a certificate at that time should they later want it as proof.
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.

• A Safe Space, Level 2 – Creating a safe space
For leaders, assistant leaders, unit helpers, leaders in training, young leaders, peer educators and those that are doing level 3 and 4.

• A Safe Space, Level 3 – Recognising, telling and taking action
For anyone leading a team of adults, leaders in charge (or at least one leader per unit with module four of the Leadership qualification), mentors, advisers, coordinators (except GO coordinators), licence holders on residentials, trainers, tutors and those doing level 4.

• A Safe Space, Level 4 – Managing concerns, allegations and disclosures
For all commissioners, designates, deputies and those sharing a role, trainers delivering A Safe Space, Safeguarding Leads and A Safe Space advisers.
