The Safeguarding & Protecting Children workshop will raise your awareness of the telltale signs of abuse, and give you the tools and confidence you need to deal with any issues sensitively, appropriately and effectively should the need ever arise.
In order to achieve SafeGolf accreditation, which will become part of the England Golf affiliation process from January 2021, professionals, volunteers and other staff working regularly with juniors need to have completed a face to face Safeguarding & Protecting Children workshop within the last 3 years or completed the online refresher course within the last 3 years having previously attended at least one face to face workshop.
Safeguarding & Protecting Children Workshops are also readily available through UK Coaching or your local Active Partnership (previously County Sports Partnership) so please visit their websites to find out details of what’s available in your area.
Please note; England Golf will be organising further workshops throughout the year where there is limited provision available. UK Coaching offer an online refresher course for those who have previously attended at least one face to face workshop. Click here for more information.
