Time to Listen (Online Classroom)

This online classroom introduces the role of the Welfare Officer. 

This virtual session of Time to Listen (TTL) is an alternative delivery method created by the NSPCC’s Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) and replaces the previous face to face TTL workshop during this period of uncertainty and disruption. The learning outcomes remain the same and it therefore meets the requirements of SafeGolf.

In order to achieve full SafeGolf accreditation, clubs and counties must appoint a welfare officer who has completed Time to Listen training. All affiliated golf clubs in England must achieve the SafeGolf standard by the end of March 2021 but have until the end of December 2021 for their Welfare Officer to obtain the TTL certification.

PLEASE NOTE: Welfare officers must have attended a Safeguarding and Protecting Children workshop or online classroom previously.

The virtual classrooms listed below are open to Club and County Welfare Officers. Please note, session prices may vary dependent upon the provider.
