Volunteer records on Whole Game System
As a club we are asked to have all volunteers take the safeguarding for all course. This includes junior volunteers who help and are doing their duke of Edinburgh award, team secretaries and other club officer roles.
Once completed the qualification is not shown on WGS in the safeguarding tab or in the qualification report so I am unable to verify if they are qualified or not. This is because volunteers volunteers cannot be added to a team and only team officials are shown in the qualification report.
Can WGS be amended to include this? It seems pointless if as welfare officer I can't access this information to verify the commitment of our officers having asked them to complete the training.
Parents of our Under 14's had difficulty in setting up their children to take the course as no instruction was given by FA Education. Again the qualification is not shown as they are volunteers taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
