Course Description


This workshop is a ‘Minimum Standards for Active Coaches’ requirement for many governing bodies of sport*. The 'Minimum Standards for Active Coaches’ are seen as the basic standards every coach needs to meet to carry out their role safely and effectively. It can also be attended by all those responsible for organising children’s sport (eg within governing bodies of sport, local authorities, sports and leisure centres, and sports clubs) and those who lead or deliver children’s sport programmes (eg coaches, leaders, instructors, development officials, administrators, volunteers and parents).

Duration: 3 hours

This course will help you:

  • 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 'Safeguarding and Protecting Children' workshops and resource meet the key safeguarding learning needs of coaches and other sports staff and volunteers. The NSPCC and its Child Protection in Sport Unit fully support the new workshop and resources to help organisations and individuals to act to make sport the best it can be for current and future generations."

(Anne Tiivas, Director of the Child Protection in Sport Unit)
