Safeguarding and protecting children

"Thank you so much for making the evening enjoyable, interesting, informative and thought provoking."

Delivered by UK Coaching

This workshop aims to increase awareness of safeguarding and protecting children, helping coaches recognise signs of abuse and poor practice. It also prompts a review of coaching practice to ensure that sport provides a positive and enriching experience for children.

Note: the FA and LTA only accept their own Safeguarding qualifications.

In the workshop you will cover:

  • identifying and recognising good coaching practice and the implications for them
  • exploring values and feelings in relation to child abuse and recognise how these may potentially impact on responses
  • recognising and responding to the signs and symptoms of child abuse and poor practice
  • taking appropriate action if concerns about a child arise

Who should attend:

Anybody involved with the delivery of children’s sport - coaches, leaders, instructors, development officials, committee members, administrators, and volunteers. Attendees must be 18+, or attend with an adult.
