COURSE DETAILS

We are getting ready to launch a new online Safeguarding Children course in Spring 2021.

We are currently redeveloping this course as an online learning module, that you can complete at a time that suits you.

This new course supports The FA’s strategic goal to raise standards across the game and will provide club representatives, coaches, referees and volunteers with an awareness of best practice in safeguarding children in football.

Focused on making football safe, the course will help you learn how to recognise signs and symptoms of abuse, while understanding fears involved in these concerns.

The FA Safeguarding Children Course is designed for anyone that works with young people.

Register your interest in this course today and be the first to know when we launch.

FAQS
Yes, you will need to attend this module as it is Football specific.

No, if you completed a course on your last renewal you should be able to complete an 'Online Safeguarding Re-certification' Course which can be found by clicking here or by downloading from the Coach Education Documents below. 

The Safeguarding Children Course is designed to provide key information on how to prevent, identify and action any potential Safeguarding issues for any volunteer who has regular contact with children/ vulnerable players in football. As best practice a volunteer who has regular contact would benefit from attending this course. 

The course opened my eyes to potential issues that might arise and gave me more confidence in how to address them. It also confirmed that I am conducting myself in the appropriate manner and am using best practice.
