Yes. Following the recent update to POR, details here, as of the 18th March 2016 Section Assistants now need to complete their Getting Started training within 5 months of their appointment for their role to become full. This brings their training requirements in line with other roles.
This change should not affect Section Assistants who have roles which were full prior to 18th March 2016, when the change came in to place. If you have any further questions, please contact the Scout Information Centre.
