Safeguarding and Protecting Children course

The Safeguarding and Protecting Children (SPC) course is mandatory for all people working in an environment where children are present. The course will help candidates to raise awareness of the tell-tale signs of abuse and show how to take appropriate action if concerns about a child arise.

The SPC course is a compulsory pre requisite for those wishing to become a Level 1 coach. Acceptable forms of the SPC1 course include a face to face course and online classroom version. Please note the online only non classroom course/refresher course is not accepted for this level of coach.

SPC Certificates must be renewed every three years. 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.

The online only/refresher course is only an acceptable form for those coaches who need to renew their SPC certificates and who have previously attended a face to face or online classroom based course.
