Safeguarding and protecting children

Provided by sports coach UK

This workshop aims to increase awareness of safeguarding and protecting children, helping coaches recognise signs of abuse and poor  practice. It also prompts a review of coaching practice to ensure that sport provides a positive and enriching experience for children.

Please note, the FA and LTA only accept their own Safegaurding Qualification.

In the workshop you will cover:

  • identifying and recognising good coaching practice and the implications for them
  • exploring values and feelings in relation to child abuse and recognise how these may potentially impact on responses
  • recognising and responding to the signs and symptoms of child abuse and poor practice
  • taking appropriate action if concerns about a child arise

Who should attend:

Anybody involved with the delivery of children’s sport. For example coaches, leaders, instructors, development officials, committee members, administrators, volunteers and parents (attendees must be 18 years old or above).
