The workshop is a Minimum Operating Standard requirement for many governing bodies of sport, it can be delivered to all those responsible for organising children’s sport (eg within governing bodies of sport, local authorities, sports and leisure centres, sports clubs) and those who lead or deliver children’s sport programmes (eg coaches, leaders, instructors, development officials, administrators, volunteers, parents).
This workshop aims to increase awareness of safeguarding and protecting children, helping coaches to recognise signs of abuse and poor practice, and deal sensitively and effectively with issues that arise. It also prompts a review of coaching practice to ensure that sport provides a positive and enriching experience for children.
By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
• Identify and recognise good coaching practice and the implications for them
• Explore their values and feelings in relation to child abuse, and recognise how these may potentially impact on their response
• Recognise and respond to the signs and symptoms of child abuse and poor practice
• Take appropriate action if concerns about a child arise.
Places will only be confirmed upon receipt of payment.
