Child Wellbeing and Protection in Sport

This workshop aims to increase awareness of safeguarding and protecting children, helping coaches to recognise signs of abuse and poor practice, and deal sensitively and effectively with issues that arise. It also prompts a review of coaching practice to ensure that sport provides a positive and enriching experience for children. The course is targeted at all practitioners working with under 18 participants; coaches and volunteers working directly with children and young people.

This new course offers a blended learning approach of an online module (module 1) which is theory based followed by a face-to-face learning intervention (module 2). This online module (module 1) must be completed prior to the course. On completion of both module 1 and 2  you will receive a sports coach UK certificate of attendance. This workshop is a ‘Minimum Standards for Active Coaches’ requirement for many governing bodies of sport.

Please note the minimum age to attend is 18 years.
