The scheme is comprehensively documented on the Scouts HQ site. Read FS 120100 first.
It is important to have read the relevant information on ScoutBase before submitting an application form.
Applicants should submit an application to the activities team. The team will find an assessor, the assessor will then contact the applicant and fix a date for assessment. If you are successful your assessor will enter their bits of your permit on compass and advise your DC who will then need to sign off other bits on compass before the permit can be issue.
Should the applicant have been assessed by an assessor from outside the county the application form and assessment form will need to be sent to the "MAPS" (manager of the permit scheme who is a member of the activities team) for it to be put on compass, as assessors external to GME can not see you on compass.

In the past we have set assessment dates in advance but the take up has been poor.
If you want an assessment please fully complete the GME assessment application for your activity and we will then contact you to arrange an assessment.
