Safeguarding 1 Basic Awareness in Child Protection Workshop
Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown Sports Partnership are running a Safeguarding 1 workshop at Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel, Killiney Hill Road, Killiney, Dublin on the 13th of November
Sport Ireland and the Sport Northern Ireland published a joint Code of Ethics and Good Practice for Children’s Sport in 2000. This major joint publication recognised the commitment of both Councils to ensure that young people are safeguarded in their participation in sport in the island of Ireland.
The Code has been adopted and implemented by governing bodies of sports, clubs, local sports partnerships and community/voluntary groups on an on-going basis since 2000. It has been encouraging to see the common sense approach to the adoption of the code at a grassroots level, which has resulted in protection for young people and leaders.
All Coaches, Club Children’s Officers and Designated Liaison Persons must first complete this 3 hour Safeguarding and Protecting Children and young adults Basic Awareness Course. This course educates participants on the implementation of best practice in protecting the welfare of children involved in sport.
The workshop will highlight the main principles of the Code, look at measures that clubs can take to create and maintain the safest possible environment for sport for young people.
As well as undertaking child protection training, all clubs are encouraged to adopt child protection policies and procedures as outlined in the Code of Ethics and Good Practice for Children’s Sport.
As many club members as wish can attend the Code of Ethics Awareness Workshop.
Participants attending Code of Ethics Awareness workshop must be over 18 years of age.
Participants can follow on the code of ethics workshop with Children’s Officer Training.
This course must be renewed every three years.
