FA Safeguarding Children Workshop

Awarded by the Football Association, this short 3 hour course provides club representatives, coaches, referees and volunteers with an awareness of best practice in safeguarding children in football.

Course Information

Course Duration: 3 Hours
Price: £20 Per Candidate
Pre-requisites: None  

Who is this course for?

This course is open to anyone over the age of 18, specifically those who are involved in supporting young footballers including those under 18 years playing in adult football. Coaches, medics and referees are encouraged to complete the course, especially those involved with Charter Standard clubs where the Safeguarding qualification is a mandatory requirement. The Durham FA will also work with individual clubs or leagues who believe they have sufficient demand to warrant a club/league specific Safeguarding Course at their own venue. The minimum number of participants required for a course to run = 20. 

What can I expect from the course?

3 hours in duration, managed by an experienced and fully qualified FA Safeguarding Tutor, the course format is classroom based and will provide you with the knowledge to support participants to create a fun, safe and positive environment and importantly, ensure you are aware how to identify and report any concerns about a child’s welfare. On completion, your Safeguarding Children Workshop will be valid for 3 years and is a pre-requisite to gaining a ‘pass’ across all FA Coaching qualification levels.

On completion of the course, you will have covered;

  • Best Practice
  • Signs, symptoms, forms of abuse and poor practice
  • Behaviours that are cause for concern
  • Attitudes in relation to poor practice and abuse
  • Taking Action
  • What to do if you have concerns
  • How to respond to a child when they disclose abuse
