Safeguarding and Protecting Children in Sport

Details

Sponsored by Intertrust Group this workshop aims to raise awareness and understanding of safeguarding and protecting children and ‘at risk’ individuals in sport.

About this Workshop: 

This is a face-to-face delivered workshop, designed to safeguard and protect children and ‘at risk’ individuals in sport. The course is a UK Coaching accredited training, delivered by Jersey Sport tutors. The Jersey-specific referral system will be included.

Audience

This workshop is intended for anyone who offers sport or physical activity provision for children and/or ‘at risk’ individuals in a professional or voluntary capacity.

Aim

The aim of this workshop is to raise participant’s awareness of the risks to children and ‘at risk’ individuals through abuse, and for them to gain an understanding of their role and responsibility in safeguarding.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the workshop the participants should be able to:

– Understand what is meant by the terms ‘Safeguarding’ and ‘Child Protection’

– Reflect upon how society’s beliefs, values and attitudes towards children and child abuse have changed over time

– Recognise different kinds of abuse as well as their signs and indicators

– Identify barriers to safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable individuals

– Respond effectively to concerns about the safety and welfare of a child and/or ‘at risk’ individual, following their own agency and relevant safeguarding policies

– Follow reporting procedures in line with recommendations from local services to Jersey and a sport’s National Governing Body or World Federation.

On-going Support

Sports organisations have a responsibility to ensure all children, adults and ‘at risk’ individuals are appropriately safeguarded. As part of this, appropriate policies, procedures, training and support should be in place.
