Welfare Officer / Safeguarding Lead Training (‘Time to Listen’)


A workshop designed for Welfare Officers; although beneficial to anyone with a safeguarding responsibility within a sports organisation.

About this event

The ‘Time to Listen’ workshop is UK Coaching accredited and developed in partnership with the NSPCC’s Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU), and delivered face-to-face by Jersey Sport tutors. The Jersey-specific referral system is included.

Please note: you must be a current resident of Jersey to access our training and workshops.

The workshop is designed to support Welfare Officers and Safeguarding Leads carry out their safeguarding roles and responsibilities within their respective sports organisation, and build the knowledge and confidence to know how to deal with a safeguarding incident or concern. The workshop will provide the opportunity to discuss a range of topics in a friendly, open and informal environment, as well as providing an opportunity to learn from other local Welfare Officers and Safeguarding Leads.

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

– Identify the role and responsibilities of a Welfare Officer and Safeguarding Lead

– Describe how a Welfare Officer / Safeguarding Lead works with others to create a safe child-centred environment

– Explain how the Welfare Officer / Safeguarding Lead role fits into the wider safeguarding environment

– Apply learning to case studies and own context whilst sharing good safeguarding practice

Participants must be at least 18 years old to enrol, and must have completed UK Coaching’s Safeguarding & Protecting Children in Sport workshop within three years before completing this training (this workshop is also delivered locally by Jersey Sport). The ‘Time to Listen’ workshop certification is valid for three years upon completion, however we would recommend completing refreshers every 1-2 years to remain current with good safeguarding practice.
