Safeguarding & Protecting Children
Sat 20 May 2017, 09:30 – 12:30 BST
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.
Newly updated to address the impact of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012.
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.
'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.'
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.
Unfortunately no refunds can be given within 10 days of the course date.
