It is within our minimum standards of operation for all adults working with children to have undertaken a safeguarding and protecting children course. We therefore organise a number of regular UK Coaching Safeguarding and Protecting Children courses across Herefordshire and Worcestershire which all sports clubs and organisations can access and can be found here.
If applicable, we will adhere to and uphold the safeguarding qualification requirements set out by National Governing Bodies (NGB's) as minimum standards for an individual to carry out a given role. This may involve the completion of an NGB specific safeguarding qualification or alternative equivalent to the UK Coaching workshop.
In addition we also offer Time To Listen Multi Sport courses each year, enabling clubs and organisations to build upon the learning taken from the Safeguarding and Protecting Children course to up-skill a Club Welfare Officer (CWO) or Safeguarding lead.
