Safeguarding and Protecting Children Workshop Level 1 The workshop is a Minimum Operating Standard requirement for many governing bodies of sport, it can be delivered to all those responsible for organising children’s sport (eg within governing bodies of sport, local authorities, sports and leisure centres, sports clubs) and those who lead or deliver children’s sport programmes (eg coaches, leaders, instructors, development officials, administrators, volunteers, parents). This workshop aims to increase awareness of safeguarding and protecting children, helping coaches to recognise signs of abuse and poor practice, and deal sensitively and effectively with issues that arise. It also prompts a review of coaching practice to ensure that sport provides a positive and enriching experience for children. By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to: • identify and recognise good coaching practice and the implications for them • explore their values and feelings in relation to child abuse, and recognise how these may potentially impact on their response • recognise and respond to the signs and symptoms of child abuse and poor practice • take appropriate action if concerns about a child arise.
Safeguarding and Protecting Children Workshop Level 2 By working through ‘Safeguarding and Protecting Children 2’, you will reflect on, and learn from, your own and others’ coaching experiences. The workshop aims to ensure that the learning from the first ‘Safeguarding and Protecting Children’ workshop is consolidated and updated. It aims to provide a valuable opportunity to build on knowledge gained since the first workshop and share best practice through scenarios and reflection upon the experiences of participants. ‘Safeguarding and Protecting Children 2’ satisfies the requirements of the UKCC and Clubmark in relation to basic safeguarding and protecting children awareness training when attended as a ‘refresher’ workshop within three years of attending the first ‘Safeguarding and Protecting Children’ workshop or an equivalent recognised direct delivery workshop.
A Guide to Mentoring Sports Coaches Mentoring is a powerful tool in the education and development of sports coaches at all levels. The workshop will help you, as a mentor, to support coaches’ learning and focus on how learning occurs. By the end of this workshop, coaches will be able to: • Identify their role as mentor • Develop their mentoring profile • Increase the effectiveness of their mentoring relationships by developing practical mentoring skills • Design a mentoring programme that best suits the needs of their sport and the level of coaching.
