Safeguarding and Protecting Children course

The Safeguarding and Protecting Children course is mandatory for all people working in an environment where children are present, and is a mandatory requirement for those wishing to become a Level 1 coach. You must have an up-to-date Safeguarding and Protecting Children certificate in order to complete your Level 2, 3 or 4 course, and to be a fully valid England Squash Coaches Club member. 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.

From 1st September 2019 all candidates will be required to attend a minimum three-hour Safeguarding & Protecting Children Workshop or equivalent in person. Online courses or distance learning safeguarding qualifications will not be accepted.
