Leader Applications will be open in October

1. Pray

Prayerfully consider your involved in Big Week Out.

We encourage leaders of all ages, from all denominations and of varying skills and abilities to register. However, the one thing we value the most is your faith in God and your passion in seeing his love brought into action. As a leader on BIG WEEK OUT you will be expected to model Christ's love and to encourage participants to get passionate about serving both God, each other and the world around us. We ask that you take this responsibility seriously and take some time to consider your involvement.

2. Register on Join-a-Team

Head to the Join-a-Team (JAT) website to begin your application.

If you haven't used Join-a-Team before then you'll need to create an account. Previous users will have a lot of information pre-filled (potentially also including previous ChildSafe and CrimTrak records)!

3. ChildSafe Requirements

Pick the scenario below that describes you:

"I have completed SUSA ChildSafe Training in the past three years."
You will need to provide proof of this to your base leader if it isn't pre-filled into JAT.

"I have completed a similar course in the past three years."
You will need to provide evidence of this course AND complete a Scripture Union specific course either at the Training Evening or online (please contact your base leader).

"I have not completed any ChildSafe or similar courses in the past three years."
You will need to attend the Training Evening.

ChildSafe Training Evening - Thursday 5th January - 6pm Richmond Baptist Church

4. Police Clearance

If you have a valid (valid until any date after 20/01/2017) Police Clearance for working with children please fill in all appropriate details on JAT and bring this on the first day of Big Week Out.

If you need a new Police Clearance - Scripture Union can process a CrimTrak check for you. Please contact your Base Leader.

5. Pay!
