Safeguarding Training

Safeguarding 1 Refresher

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:

  1. best practice procedure;
  2. understanding of why safeguarding children and young people in sport is important;
  3. recognising the different categories of child abuse and identify the signs of abuse;
  4. 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 or go to your local sports partnership.
