Safeguarding Training

All sports coaches, leaders, volunteers and paid staff should have the appropriate skills, and where necessary qualifications and experience to enable them to carry out their role effectively.

Sports coaches/leaders must hold an up to date nationally recognised governing body coaching qualification/s which is appropriate to the level and sport being coached.

In general an assistant coach must hold a level 1 qualification and should coach under the supervision of a more experienced and qualified coach. A coach must hold a level 2 qualification to coach on their own.

Sports coaches/leaders must also hold appropriate, up to date insurance cover, and if working within schools must have attended education awareness training.

All club personnel (paid or voluntary) should be covered through the clubs' insurance.

Welfare officers, coaches and leaders must undertake recognised child protection training. Training should be recognised by the appropriate National Governing Body (NGB) and could be a face to face workshop, online training or webinar. Please check advice provided by your appropriate NGB as it tends to differ between sports and some even recommend a sport specific version.

Club welfare officers must also attend training for welfare officers (Time to Listen)

Role Descriptions - It is recommended that clubs/ organisations have role descriptions for all volunteers and club personnel.
