ScoutLink has now been rolled out to all Regions, and training is now provided by ScoutLink Champions upon request.
As of February 2016, each Group can have two (2) individuals with access to ScoutLink.
The second person can be either an Appointed Leader (not a Leader in Training) or a Group Supporter and will be nominated by the Group Leader (or Leader In Charge) and endorsed by the Region Commissioner.
If the second person is a Supporter, it will be necessary for the person to obtain a WWCC number and complete an A2 Form. The completed A2 should be submitted to the State Office via the Region Office for processing. Once the WWCC and Police clearance are received the Region Office will be advised accordingly. The Supporter will not be given access to ScoutLink until both clearances are received.
For an Appointed Leader or a Supporter, the following process is to apply:
Where a new Group Leader is appointed and that person is to be one of the two appointed Responsible Persons in the Group, once their Certificate of Adult Appointment as Group Leader is issued, the above steps are to be followed to enable the new Group Leader to gain access to ScoutLink. This includes submitting a completed form A14.
For Rover Crews, the Responsible Appointment should be an adult member; either Crew Leader (Appointed) or Formation Administration Officer.
To resign a ScoutLink Responsible Appointment, use Form A4 – Notification of Adult / Young Adult Member Resignation and indicate the nominated replacement on p2. Submit with form A14 nominating the replacement.
