The course developed in partnership with the Child Protection Sport Unit (CPSU) of the NSPCC and delivered with the safety of the young coach in mind throughout. It covers all the appropriate content to support younger coaches to recognise safeguarding and child protection best practice as an important part of your great coaching journey.

As a young leader or assistant coach, you will discover how to report any concerns you may have, and who you can report your concerns to. Safeguarding your own welfare as a coach is just as important, so this online classroom will also provide information on who you can talk to and get support from.

Safeguarding and Protecting Children (16-18) is created for a specific audience, and should be recognised by all partners who currently recognise the UK Coaching Safeguarding and Protecting Children (online classroom) and face to face workshop as an essential element of a coach’s minimum standards of deployment.

The certificate of attendance is valid for up to two years and should be renewed by attending the Safegaurding & Protecting Children classroom. 

What You Will Learn 

This session will help you:

  • identify and recognise good (coaching) practice and the implications for your coaching
  • recognise the duty of care you have for the welfare and wellbeing of players/participants 
  • identify your best practice behaviours as you move from a player/participant to a coach (or a coaching role)
  • take appropriate action if you have concerns about a child (or an adult).

This online classroom will be facilitated by a UK Coaching Safeguarding & Protecting Children tutor who is highly experienced in child welfare in sport. It will also be attended by a responsible adult who will act as a chaperone for the young people in the course.
