Safeguarding and protecting children course

The safeguarding and protecting children course is mandatory for all people working in an environment where there's children. The course is a mandatory requirement for those wishing to become a Level 1 coach. You must have an up-to-date certificate in order to complete your Level 2, 3 or 4 course. Certificates must be renewed every three years.

The course gives you the knowledge to:

  • recognise possible signs of child abuse
  • take appropriate action if concerns about a child arise.

  • Face to face: attend a three-hour Sports Coach UK Safeguarding & Protecting Children Workshop. Find your nearest course.
  • Online: complete the NSPCC Child Protection Awareness in Sport & Active Leisure (costs £20). Book now.
