FREE ONLINE SAFEGUARDING COURSE FOR CLUB COMMITTEE MEMBERS

4 months ago By Keith Parnill

The FA have introduced a FREE online safeguarding course designed specifically for club committee members.

COURSE REQUIRED FOR AFFILIATION APPROVAL IN 2017/18

Following feedback from the club safeguarding visits undertaken by County FAs around the country, it became evident that many club officials felt concerned by their own lack of knowledge of safeguarding matters.

This course has been developed to help key club officials carry out safeguarding responsibilities with confidence.

A minimum of three officers, including club secretaries, club chairpersons and club welfare officers, will need to complete this course for affiliation to be approved in 2017-18 season.

This will increase to a minimum of four officers, and include the club treasurer, for affiliation periods from 2018-19 season onwards.

Other club officials may also access the course, although for them it is entirely optional at this stage.

The course includes:
- a reflection on what makes an effective club committee
- a consideration of the role of the committee in protecting children
- advice on how to build a safe club
- advice on how to recognise and report harm and abuse

It takes approximately 30 minutes to complete, and you will be able to download a certificate to demonstrate successful completion.
