Here at Wyre Forest we offer two coach education courses, which include UK Coaching accredited safeguarding and emergency first aid.
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.
All organisations (including sports clubs) that have an involvement with children now have clear statutory duties to safeguard children's welfare. This course will identify and recognise good coaching practice and the implications for their coaching. Explore their values and feelings in relation to child abuse, and recognise their potential impact on coaches' response. Recognise and respond to the signs and symptoms of child abuse and poor practice. Take appropriate action if concerns about a child arise.
1) If you are a football club, please consult the FA for safeguarding courses.
2) This course is needed for Clubmark.
3) You must be 18+ years, or 16-18 and accompanied by an adult to attend this course. Coaches under the age of 16 are not permitted to attend this course.
