There is a module as part of the Adult Training Scheme which covers data protection and Scouting. This is part of the getting started training a member will complete within the first five months of taking on an appointment. Compass as a system however, does not require specific training, however support user guides, videos and quick hint sheets are available.
Executive Committees have always have been and will remain responsible for ensuring that proper systems are in place locally for Data Protection Act and the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) compliance – which includes ensuring that their personnel are reliable in handling personal data and are aware of their responsibilities. Further support is available online www.scouts.org.uk/dataprotection
Members should be directed to POR Chapter 2.
