Course Overview: Safeguarding in Sport

Sport is important for both physical and mental health in children and young people, as well as a good way to socialise. So anyone who works in a sports setting needs to understand their roles and responsibilities with regard to protecting the children they come into contact with. 

It’s vital for people working in sport to be able to identify the signs of neglect and abuse, and to know what action they need to take. 

The Caredemy Safeguarding in Sport online training course is a convenient and effective way for staff in sports settings to receive safeguarding training.

What is Safeguarding in sport coaching?

Safeguarding in sport is the process through which children and young adults who use a sport setting are protected from harm. This provides them with access to a safe space where they can enjoy playing their chosen sport.

Safeguarding is achieved by providing a safe and inclusive environment for participants, staff and volunteers and creating a culture where the child’s best interest is always prioritised.

All sporting organisations which work with children and young adults need to ensure that they have a safeguarding system in place. And an important part of this involves ensuring that staff and volunteers receive effective and appropriate safeguarding training. 

Who is the Safeguarding in Sport course suitable for?

Anyone who provides care for children, young people or adults is required by law to have up-to-date knowledge of the legislation, policies and guidance relating to safeguarding. This allows them to be able to identify those at risk of harm and act on any concerns that they may have about the safety of those in their care.

This online careskills course is a Level 1 introductory course which is suitable for learners at all levels. It is particularly appropriate for those working in sports settings, including social care workers, youth activity leaders and volunteers.
