Safeguarding and Protecting ChildrenReference: PA-34178
Protect yourself, the young people you are coaching and your employer by understanding and following good coaching practice.
The workshop aims to increase your awareness of safeguarding and protecting children and help coaches to recognise the signs of abuse, and poor practice, and deal sensitively and effectively with issues that arise.
This workshop will help you, the coach to:
- Identify good coaching practice to promote a positive relationship with children
-Identify sport situations and coaching practice that might constitute either poor practice or possible abuse
Identify ways of dealing with your own feelings about child abuse and state what constitutes neglect, physical, sexual and emotional abuse
- Recognise the signs and symptoms of abuse and appreciate why reporting it is often so difficult
- Identify appropriate action if a child discloses he/she has been abused
Identify appropriate action if abuse is suspected and explain the role and responsibilities of other experts (eg. police and social services)
- Describe appropriate practice that reduces the likelihood of abuse occurring.
