Overview

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.

safeguarding children

This course is held monthly within LSBU Active's facilities and taught by exceptional tutors with years of industry experience. Group sizes are between 6 and 20.

You will cover:

  • How to identify and recognise good coaching practice and the implications for your coaching
  • How to explore your values and feelings in relation to child abuse, and recognise their potential impact on your response
  • How to recognise and respond to possible signs of child abuse
  • Appropriate action if concerns about a child arise

Considering your application

Your application will be circulated to a number of potential supervisors who will look at your academic qualifications, experience and the research proposal to decide whether your research interest is something that could be supervised at LSBU.

There will also be an interview either by telephone or at the University. If you are successful you will be offered a place on a course and informed of the next enrolment date. The whole process normally takes between six to eight weeks, from receipt of your application to a decision being made about your application at the School.
