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.
This workshop will help you to:
• identify and recognise good coaching practice and the implications for you.
• explore your values and feelings in relation to child abuse, and recognise how these may potentially impact on your response.
• recognise and respond to the signs and symptoms of child abuse and poor practice
• take appropriate action if concerns about a child arise.
PLEASE NOTE: You MUST be 16 or over to attend this workshop. If you are 16 or 17 years old, you may only attend this workshop if accompanied by a responsible adult. You MUST tell us if this applies to you when you book your place.
