ONLINE – Designated Safeguarding Children’s Officer

The aim of this workshop is to enable participants to become familiar with the role of a Designated Safeguarding Children’s Officer and develop their competence and confidence in carrying out this role within sport.

By the end of the workshop participants should be able to:
•reference the legislation that pertains to safeguarding in sport and describe the main implications for the junior sports club
•describe the roles and responsibilities of key personnel/agencies in the safeguarding of children in sport, particularly the role of the Designated Safeguarding Children’s Officer
•respond appropriately to a range of situations that give grounds for concern
•discuss how you would apply skills in reporting and managing cases of poor practice and abuse within/outside sport
•review the implications of the Club Framework for Safeguarding Standards in Sport within your club/organisation.

The cost of the course is £20

You must be 18 years of age of older to take part.

DATES: 27th & 28th September 7.00pm– 8.30pm both nights.

Both nights have to be attended in order for the course to be completed.

Participants must have attended the Safeguarding Children & Young People in Sport (awareness raising) workshop before the DSCO course as this builds on the learning from the awareness raising workshop.
