This workshop will give you an essential understanding of what is required of welfare officers that are responsible for managing and reporting concerns about children, and for putting into place procedures to safeguard children, ensuring that you have the practical knowledge required to take a child-focused approach and excel in the role.
You will also learn about the importance of building relationships and trust with the key people that you’ll be working with, essential to working with colleagues to safeguard children effectively.
Through interactive scenarios featuring people from different sports and activities, you will also practise your decision-making in a safe and supportive environment, enabling you to explore some possible consequences of your decisions. This will help to prepare you to act in similar scenarios as a welfare officer, giving you crucial confidence in your ability to act in each child’s best interest.
This course is for those that wish to support their club by becoming a Welfare Officer. Head coaches may attend the course for information purposes but are not allowed to be a Welfare Officer.
Before completing this course, you should have already completed a Safeguarding and Protecting Children (SPC) course.
You must be 18 years old on the day of the course.
