"I absolutely believe that the more adults who complete this course, the more children we save from child abuse in sport and physical activity settings. I encourage parents, coaches, organisers and all those involved to take this up.'
- Paul Stewart
This Safeguarding in Sport course will allow all adults, sports clubs and organisation's to ensure a commitment to excellence in safeguarding. It will provide you with the knowledge and tools needed to help keep children safe. Written by our safeguarding and child protection experts, the course covers the key types of abuse to be aware of, how to identify them, and how to report and record your concerns.
Throughout the course, Paul uses his personal experience of abuse in a sports setting to highlight what can be done to prevent abuse from taking place. Alongside this unique survivor-led approach, the course will help you to recognise the best practices your sports club should follow to keep children safe.
The course has full audio voiceover and downloads include a code of conduct, a social media and photography policy for parents, transport guidance and a one-to-one coaching guide.
