October Safeguarding Workshops

At British Judo we want to continue to highlight the ways you can keep your child safe in sport, this might be through attending workshops or completing online safeguarding training.

This month we have two safeguarding workshops taking place at the National Olympic and Paralympic Training Centre.

UK Coaching – Safeguarding & Protecting Children Workshop: Sunday 23rd October

The interactive workshop provides you with the knowledge and ability to:

  • identify and recognise good coaching practice and the implications for your coaching
  • explore your values and feelings in relation to child abuse, and recognise their potential impact on your response
  • recognise and respond to possible signs of child abuse
  • take appropriate action if concerns about a child arise.

The workshop has been developed in partnership with the NSPCC and CPSU and includes scenarios giving you the opportunity to learn through discussion. You will have the opportunity to explore the consequences of decisions in a safe and supportive environment, helping to increase your confidence and understanding in this area.
