Volunteer access to Learn - 17 June to 30 June
As we prepare to transition as an organisation to Salvos Workday, we are making changes to the way volunteer training is delivered and recorded.
Volunteers in the former AUS, could access training by signing up to Learn or managers could request to have their training attendance recorded on Learn. As of Monday, 17 June 2019, volunteer access to Learn will be switched off.
Why is this happening?
We are making the transition to Salvos Workday as streamlined as possible by creating one single source of truth for all volunteer records in the Volunteer Management System (VMS).
Why can’t my volunteers access Learn anymore?
All volunteer records, including their mandatory training completions need to be recorded on VMS, ready for Salvos Workday. As a manager of volunteers, you will be able to easily view all your volunteer records on VMS and if they are compliant with their necessary checks and mandatory training.
AUS Volunteer Managers requesting new volunteers be added
Access to Learn is no longer available for volunteers. After 1 July, you can record any volunteer mandatory training in VMS, your single source of truth for your volunteer records. Communication will be sent on 1 July, advising how you will access training and upload the records to VMS.
Why can’t I access Learn anymore?
Access to Learn is no longer available for volunteers. This is in preparation for a new people management system (Salvos Workday), The Salvation Army is implementing. Your information is important to us and we do not want to lose any of your records. All of your mandatory training records will be stored on a system called Volunteer Management System, in readiness to be transferred to Salvos Workday. Please speak to your manager regarding accessing mandatory training at your site.
Where can I access training for my Volunteers?
With the exception of Keeping Children Safe Induction (face to face), there will be a 2 week blackout period where mandatory training will be unavailable for volunteers. New training resources will be made available on Monday 1 July. Communication will be sent on 1 July, advising how you will access training and upload the records to VMS.
I’m a volunteer - Where can I access training?
Please speak with your manager regarding mandatory training for volunteers.
When will mandatory volunteer training be available?
- Monday 1 July, 2019
- Mandatory training will be made available to volunteers in a new medium.

- This will be delivered onsite by the manager or delegate.
- Training completions will then be recorded in the VMS.
Where do I record my Keeping Children Safe completion records?
Please keep any Keeping Children Safe training attendance sheets, securely onsite. After Monday 1 July, you will be able to record these attendances, directly into VMS, for each of your volunteers.
Where do I keep my other mandatory training completion records?
Please retain any attendance sheets or records and record directly into VMS after 1 July.
