Safeguarding and Protecting Children Level 1 (for participants aged 16-17 years)

As delivered to UK Coaching Syllabus. This live online classroom, developed in partnership with the Child Protection Sport Unit (CPSU) of the NSPCC, has been created specifically for coaches aged 16 to 18 years old.

The course is created by specialists in child welfare and is written 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.

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 course will allow you to meet the mandatory safeguarding training requirement to deliver on a HAPpy camp.

Limited funded places for all young HAPpy camp staff in Hertfordshire - use promo code HAPPY2024 when booking for a free space.

PLEASE NOTE: If you have staff aged 16-18 that still require Safeguarding training but cannot make the live dates (preferred version), please see our Safegaurding Level 2 (On demand) course as this can be completed in the presence of an 18+ adult in order for them to meet the HAPpy mandatory training requirement.

POSTPONED DATE - The course originally scheduled for Wednesday 26th June has been CANCELLED due to low uptake, so please book onto the one remaining date below, we will look to add one more course date ahead of Summer delivery dependent on need.
