At a minimum a monthly report will be sent to all clubs/ branches with the details of the members who have completed the induction to ensure that a list of those mandated to complete can be tracked.
Each member will also be sent a follow up email following completion of the online induction.
BLUE CARD FORMS
A very important part of this strategy is the Blue Card System which ensures that the past is risk managed though the initial assessment, which determines a person’s eligibility to work with children, based on known police or disciplinary information.
With the volume of blue card applications being very high at this time of the season, please ensure that all forms are scrutinized prior to sending to SLSQ to alleviate delays in processing
