Safeguarding Children and Young People in Sport
Edinburgh City Council and Club Sport Edinburgh are running a Safeguarding Children and Young People workshop at the City of Edinburgh Council, Waverley Court East Market Street, Edinburgh on the 20th of November
Every child deserves to enjoy their sport. This workshop will raise your awareness of the telltale signs of abuse and give you the tools and confidence you need to deal with any issues sensitively, appropriately and effectively should the need ever arise in your coaching career.
Vulnerable Children and Adults
Some children might be at greater risk of abuse than others (eg disabled children, children in care or talented young people in sport), while some adults are vulnerable and may be at a greater risk of abuse. We have worked with the CPSU to develop some new scenarios that take into account additional vulnerabilities these groups may encounter and how we can ensure their voice is always heard in sport.
What will this course look at?
- Understanding the background to safeguard children and young people in sport.
- Identifying best practice procedures to safeguard children and young people in sport.
- Understanding the different categories of child abuse.
- Identifying the signs of abuse/poor practice.
- How to Act if abuse/poor practice is suspected.
Please note if you’re a young volunteer in sport under the age of 16 ‘Keeping Safe in Sport: Safeguarding for Young Volunteers (13+) is the workshop for you. Anyone under the age of 16 will not receive a certificate for attending this workshop. Still not sure which safeguarding and protecting children workshop is for you? Download this helpful diagram.
This workshop is a ‘Minimum Standards for Active Coaches’ requirement for many governing bodies of sport*.
