A four-module CPD certified e-learning course for staff and volunteers who have infrequent contact with children and young people through sports clubs or organisations.
Child protection in sport will help you and your staff to understand your role and responsibilities in protecting children and young people involved in sport. You will have a better understanding of how to recognise, respond, report and record concerns about a child.
For those who have regular contact with children such as sports coaches this can provide a useful precursor for more advanced face-to-face safeguarding training that is appropriate, and in some cases mandatory, for their role.
