SIS Accredited Training Package Print E-mail

There is a new way in which Leaders, Rovers and Venturer Scouts will gain qualifications in Activities. The program is an externally recognised Training Program delivered through Scouts Australia, a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).

The National Vocational Education (NVE) and Training Regulations Act (2011) came into effect on the1st July, 2011. These legislated changes were made in order to create consistency nationally with an increased focus on monitoring the quality of training providers, trainers and courses. The standards and requirements that Scouts have been directed by in the past are now legislated.

As an RTO, Scouts Australia NSW is committed to training and this will help the Association move to a single qualification and training system and also help Scouts Australia NSW comply with the Training Regulations Act (2011) and new WHS legislation.

A series of documents have been developed to answer questions and provide an explanation of the new system.

For more information visit the National Training and Development Qualifications website.
