UK Coaching: Safeguarding and Protecting Children

Southwark Campus

Mode: Full-time; Part-time; Block release; Day release; Evening only

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 the Academy of Sport facilities at London South Bank University 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
