Safeguarding is a ‘Minimum Deployment Requirement’ for many governing bodies of sport. The ‘Minimum Deployment Requirements’ are seen as the basic standards every coach needs to meet to carry out their role safely and effectively. The online classroom can also be attended by all those responsible for organising children’s sport (eg within governing bodies of sport, local authorities, sports and leisure centres, and sports clubs) and those who lead or deliver children’s sport programmes (eg coaches, leaders, instructors, development officials, administrators, volunteers and parents), an estimated 76% of whom undertake these roles on a voluntary basis.
Check with your governing body of sport for further information, and to ascertain whether or not attendance at a safeguarding workshop is required before you commence coaching. Governing bodies of sport set their own standards for safeguarding training. The NSPCC’s recommendation is that anyone with regular responsibility for children and young people should ideally undertake face-to-face training and the same applies to the Minimum Deployment Requirements’ However, these are extenuating circumstances and UK Coaching believe it is important that Safeguarding training is still made available at this time.
Online Classroom training allows delegates to ask questions in a safe environment facilitated by a qualified safeguarding tutor. It also provides the opportunity to discuss specific safeguarding issues that arise during the training. Refresher training is available online. Recommended to be completed at three-yearly intervals.
