A bit about the course from the provider
This workshop is a ‘Minimum Standards for Active Coaches’ requirement for many governing bodies of sport. The ‘Minimum Standards for Active Coaches’ are seen as the basic standards every coach needs to meet to carry out their role safely and effectively. It can also be attended by all those responsible for organising children’s sport (eg within governing bodies of sport, local authorities, sports and leisure centres, and sports clubs) and those who lead or deliver children’s sport programmes (eg coaches, leaders, instructors, development officials, administrators, volunteers and parents), an estimated 76% of whom undertake these roles on a voluntary basis.
The NSPCC’s recommendation is that anyone with regular responsibility for children and young people should undertake face-to-face training and the same applies to UK Coaching’s Minimum Standards for Active Coaches. Face-to-face training allows delegates to ask questions in a safe environment facilitated by a qualified safeguarding tutor. It also provides the opportunity to discuss specific safeguarding issues that arise during the training.
“Valuable information for anyone coaching or involved with children or vulnerable adults.”
