Description

Create a Positive Sports Experience for Young People

Every child deserves to enjoy their sport. This workshop will raise your awareness of the telltale 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.

Updated to include content on Anti-radicalisation and Vulnerable Children and Adults.

Vulnerable Children and Adults

Some children might be at greater risk of abuse than others (eg disabled children, children in care or talented young people in sport), while some adults are vulnerable and may be at a greater risk of abuse. We have worked with the CPSU to develop some new scenarios that take into account additional vulnerabilities these groups may encounter and how we can ensure their voice is always heard in sport.

• Anti-radicalisation

UK Coaching have worked with the Police Prevent team to help develop new guidance and scenarios that will help coaches understand the warning signs that a young person may be being radicalised. We have also included information on how anyone with concerns can contact the NSPCC anti-radicalisation hotline.

Attendees must be over 16 to access this workshop.

(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.)

‘The “Safeguarding and Protecting Children” workshops and resource meet the key safeguarding learning needs of coaches and other sports staff and volunteers. The NSPCC and its Child Protection in Sport Unit fully support the new workshop and resources to help organisations and individuals to act to make sport the best it can be for current and future generations.’

Anne Tiivas, Director of the Child Protection in Sport Unit
