Safeguarding & Protecting Children Workshop

This interactive workshop will help coaches recognise poor practice and the red flags of abuse, while also prompting a review of your coaching practice to ensure that you provide a positive and enriching experience for all children.

The workshop has been developed in partnership with the NSPCC and CPSU and includes scenarios giving you the opportunity to learn through discussion, exploring the consequences of those decisions in a safe and supportive environment, helping to increase your confidence.

The guidance and scenarios provided are designed to counteract the latest threats to emerge that could impact on the physical or mental health of children in modern Britain, including 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 scenarios that take into account additional vulnerabilities these groups may encounter and how we can ensure their voice is always heard in sport.

The course has been awarded 3 CPD points by the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA).

Please note, learners must be 18+ to attend this workshop.

You will receive a digital copy of Safeguarding and Protecting Children: A Guide for Sportspeople to guide you in your future coaching. Packed full of practical guidance it will help you to deal sensitively and effectively with any issues that arise.
