Changes to Roles
Updated 10 December 2020
As a result of the changes made to Safety and Safeguarding training and that it is now online independent learning, the Safety and Safeguarding Trainer roles are no longer required.
Members who currently hold those roles should have a discussion with their Training manager as to other roles which may be available to them.
We have removed the Safeguarding Awareness variant in Compass and this will have been removed from the Trainer roles that are still active.
We’ve taken the decision to require a wider set of roles to undertake Safety and Safeguarding training, to deliver it as independent eLearning, and are making a number of updates to policies and processes within the Safety and Safeguarding areas.
While the roles of Safety and Safeguarding Awareness Coordinators aren’t involved in training, the type and method of support that these roles provide locally does need to change to meet new requirements.
The Safety and Safeguarding Coordinator roles are therefore no longer required. New roles have been designed to provide support to Safety and Safeguarding locally. These are:
- Local Safety Adviser
- Local Safeguarding Adviser
Current Coordinator role holders and their line managers are being asked for feedback as part of consultation on these proposals. The deadline for feedback is 18 September 2020. These members have been communicated with directly.
Current Coordinator role holders will need to have an appointment review with their line manager to discuss options, including agreeing their suitability and willingness to undertake the new role.
In response to feedback there is a desire to record Quartermasters in Compass and this is best felt as a variant of the Supporter role.
The variant of Quartermaster has been added to the Group, District and County Supporter roles. This is now available to be selected in Compass.
As part of the July 2020 Training and POR Pre-Launch check consultation we asked for feedback on the role of President and Vice President.
Based on feedback, as Presidents and Vice Presidents are honorary roles, they will no longer have training obligations. See more on training requirements by role.
This role will be discontinued from 15 September 2020.
If you held this role on Compass it has been set to end on 15 September 2020 and has been replaced with an Executive Committee member role. The start has been set to the same as for the Executive Committee Officer (Acting) role.
