Our Company could not run without the dedicated work by all of our staff, who are all highly trained and experienced volunteer youth leaders. All of our staff are DBS checked and are trained by the Boys’ Brigade nationally to carry out their duties, this includes child well-being and protection matters. Our staff are expected to attend training in all areas of the youth work. Training can take place at local, regional or national levels. Members of staff are over 18 years of age who desire to work with the Church, to promote the Object of The Boys’ Brigade. Our staff are appointed to their positions by Hextable Methodist Church’s Church Council by nomination from the Company Captain. Their leader registration is then approved by the Battalion before being sent off to Boys’ Brigade Headquarters to confirm their registration once their DBS checks are completed.
