Child Protection Training
Sport Birmingham organises child protection training in partnership with Sports Structures.
Safeguarding and Protecting Children 1:
This workshop will raise your awareness of the tell-tale signs of abuse and poor practice, and give you the tools you need to deal with any issues sensitively, appropriately and effectively should the need ever arise in your coaching career (this workshop is a 'Minimum Standards for Active Coaches' requirement for many NGBs).
Safeguarding and Protecting Children 2:
Reflecting on Practice - In this refresher session, you will consolidate your knowledge and have the opportunity to share best practice in creating a positive, child-centred sporting environment (this workshop is a Minimum Standard for Active Coaches requirement for many NGBs. Attend this session within three years of completing "SPC1" and you'll satisfy the basic safeguarding children awareness training requirements of the UKCC and Clubmark. Only those who have attended the first "SPC" workshop will be eligible to go on this workshop).
PLEASE NOTE: A valid Safeguarding Children certificate is a minimum requirement for active coaches and it should be renewed every three years.
