Your Personal Learning history when we transition

Learn about how we'll recognise training history as we move systems

Training history

For our existing volunteers, training currently validated on Compass will automatically move across to the new system. Wood Badges will be shown in the system as awards.

After we transition, if you’re missing something, contact the Info Centre.  

From Getting Started to Growing Roots  

All new volunteers at Scouts will need to complete their Growing Roots learning.  

Existing volunteers who’ve validated all their Getting Started modules will be automatically signed off as having completed Growing Roots. 

Volunteers who’ve validated some of their Getting Started modules will need to complete any outstanding learning through our new system.
