|SIS-10 Accredited Training Package|
There is a new way in which Leaders, Rovers and Venturer Scouts will gain qualifications in Adventurous Activities. The SIS-10 program is an externally recognised Training Program delivered through the Scouts Australia Institute of Training (SAIT), 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.
"This is an exciting time for our Adult Training and Development Team. To offer training for accredited courses in Adventurous Activities will only enhance opportunities for Leaders and Youth Members, said Margaret Crawford, Assistant Chief Commissioner Adult Training and Development.
A series of documents have been developed to answer questions and provide an explanation of the new system.
