Sport NI are delighted to announce that they can offer a Designated Safeguarding Officer Workshop delivered online, in light of the current restrictions. Following a number of enquiries regarding the workshop, Sport NI have been working hard over the last number of weeks with the NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit to adapt the workshop to an online virtual format for coaches and volunteers to undertake.
This Designated Officer Workshop aims to support those undertaking the role of Designated Safeguarding Children’s Officer in sports clubs including creating an awareness of key legislation and good practice, how to respond in a range of situations of concern and how to develop the standards of safeguarding within a club environment. The 3 hour workshop is currently being delivered online in 2 x 1.5 hour sessions. Both sessions need to be undertaken in order to complete the workshop. The workshop format is online delivery with a tutor via Zoom including interactive polls and breakout rooms to knowledge check and promote discussion. PARTICIPANTS MUST HAVE COMPLETED THE SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE WORKSHOP PRIOR TO UNDERTAKING THE DESIGNATED OFFICER WORKSHOP.
Designated Children’s Officer Online Virtual Workshop dates:
Tuesday 19th & Thursday 21st January 6.45-8.30pm Course Registration Link
