Aligned with The FA, Lincoln United Football Club, seeks to build a safe, fun and inclusive environment for all children and young people, whether they are players, young referees or qualified coaches.
To help guide those working with children and young people, The FA provides various courses in safeguarding children. Sometimes these are required as part of a qualification (e.g. for coaches and referee), and sometimes for a role, (e.g. the Club Welfare Officer). However, there are courses suitable for everyone, whatever their role in youth football.
All FA safeguarding courses are football-focused and child-centred. They are relevant, engaging and designed to help learners act appropriately and with confidence.
As an FA Charter Standard Club we're committed to ensuring our workforce is suitably qualified to support our young players both on and off the field.
The courses available to attain and renew safeguarding qualifications are listed below and available through The FA's Boot Room (link below):
