COURSE DETAILS

Awarded by the FA, this short 3 hour course provides club representatives, coaches, referees and volunteers with an awareness of best practice in safeguarding children in football. The course supports the FA’s strategic goal to raise standards across the game.

The FA Safeguarding Children Workshop is designed for anyone that works with young people.

Focused on making football safe, the course will help you learn how to recognise signs and symptoms of abuse, while understand fears involved in these concerns.

Section 1: Best practice

Section 2: What is poor practice? What is abuse?

Section 3: What to do about poor practice and abuse

Section 4: What next?

Outcomes

The workshop will raise your awareness and specifically help you to be able to:

  • Identify and build on best practice in football
  • Recognise signs of abuse and identify what behaviour causes concern
  • Identify the actions to take if you have a concern and who can help
  • Develop your action plan for change

The course opened my eyes to potential issues that might arise and gave me more confidence in how to address them. It also confirmed that I am conducting myself in the appropriate manner and am using best practice.

Yes, you will need to attend this module as it is Football specific.
Unfortunately not. Each individual learner is required to book their place using their own FAN and Password. This is to ensure our information on medical conditions, emergency contacts etc is accurate and up to date. The booking agreement is always between Hertfordshire FA and the individual learner.
We run a variety of courses in a variety of formats –some weekend only, some mid-week, some a mix of the two etc. We ensure that we run the variety of formats and courses across the county throughout the year and attendance may require flexibility from each learner i.e. travel further afield within the county to get the dates best suited or be flexible on dates to attend at preferred venue. Whilst we try to provide as many options to our volunteers as possible we are restricted to how we deliver courses due to tutor and facility availability.
