Safeguarding 1 Refresher
Sport Ireland has now gone live with an on line Safeguarding 1 Refresher, a web based education resource aimed at providing further training to those who have previously attended a Safeguarding workshop or equivalent. This should be done every time an instructor is revalidating their instructor qualification or every 5 years.
The content contains four modules which will provide persons in roles with regular responsibility for children an opportunity to learn about:
- best practice procedure;
- understanding of why safeguarding children and young people in sport is important;
- recognising the different categories of child abuse and identify the signs of abuse;
- and the responding, recording and reporting issues of poor practice or abuse.
The web app can also be found on the Sport Ireland website home page in the Sport Ireland E-Leaning Section.
We remind you that Safeguarding 1 courses are run on demand, so contact us if you need a course in your area. Safeguarding 2 & 3 dates are here https://www.sailing.ie/safeguarding-2-3-training/ or go to your local sports partnership.
