Safeguarding & Protecting Children

Tags
Children Safeguarding
Accredited by UK Coaching, this workshop will raise your awareness of the tell-tale signs of abuse and give you the tools and confidence you need to deal with any issues sensitively, appropriately and effectively should the need ever arise in your coaching career.  

Why attend?

This workshop is a 'Minimum Standards for Active Coaches' requirement for many governing bodies of sport. The 'Minimum Standards for Active Coaches' are seen as the basic standards every coach needs to meet to carry out their role safely and effectively. It can also be attended by all those responsible for organising children's sport (eg within governing bodies of sport, local authorities, sports and leisure centres, and sports clubs) and those who lead or deliver children's sport programmes (eg coaches, leaders, instructors, development officials, administrators, volunteers and parents), an estimated 76% of whom undertake these roles on a voluntary basis.

Check with your governing body of sport for further information, and to ascertain whether or not attendance at a safeguarding workshop is required before you commence coaching. Governing bodies of sport set their own standards for safeguarding training. The NSPCC's recommendation is that anyone with regular responsibility for children and young people should undertake face-to-face training and the same applies to UK Coaching's Minimum Standards for Active Coaches. Face-to-face training allows delegates to ask questions in a safe environment facilitated by a qualified safeguarding tutor. It also provides the opportunity to discuss specific safeguarding issues that arise during the training.

What will you learn?

You will be able to:

  • identify and recognise good coaching practice and the implications for your coaching
  • explore your values and feelings in relation to child abuse, and recognise their potential impact on your response
  • recognise and respond to possible signs of child abuse
  • take appropriate action if concerns about a child arise.
