In light of the current situation Sport NI have revised their Designated Safeguarding Officer Training to enable online delivery.
This Designated Officer Workshop aims to support those undertaking the role of Designated Safeguarding Children’s Officer in sports clubs including creating an awareness of key legislation and good practice, how to respond in a range of situations of concern and how to develop the standards of safeguarding within a club environment. The 3 hour workshop is currently being delivered online in 2 x 1.5 hour sessions. Both sessions need to be undertaken in order to complete the workshop. The workshop format is online delivery with a tutor via Zoom including interactive polls and breakout rooms to knowledge check and promote discussion.
PARTICIPANTS MUST HAVE COMPLETED THE SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE WORKSHOP PRIOR TO UNDERTAKING THE DESIGNATED OFFICER WORKSHOP.
Upon completion of the online virtual workshop participants will receive a certificate of attendance and be asked to give their feedback via a short online survey. Certificates will be issued dependent on participants fully engaging in the workshop content.
The number of places on each workshop is limited to 12 persons presently to allow for the participant/tutor interaction to take place and ensure a good quality experience for all taking part.
These workshops are only open to volunteers from current affiliated IABA clubs. This is a requirement for ALL clubs who are / working towards Clubmark accreditation.
Please forward this correspondence to your club Designated Safeguarding Officer to complete if the need to complete this for the first time or need to refresh this training. Currently every 3 years.
