Sport Ireland reviewed and updated (Jan 2015) the structure of Child Welfare & Protection (Code of Ethics) Training Programme for Clubs. There are three stages of training:
- Safeguarding 1 – Basic Awareness Workshop in Child Welfare & Protection
– a must for anyone working with children!
- Safeguarding 2 – Club Children’s Officer (CCO) Workshop – a must for all Club Children’s Officers
- Safeguarding 3 – Designated Liaison Person (DLP) Workshop
Waterford Sports Partnership facilitates Safeguarding Training courses for people working with young people in sport throughout Waterford. The courses are for the benefit of everyone involved in children’s sport e.g. coaches, parents/guardians, sports leaders.
By following the principles, policy and practical guidelines contained in the Code, sports leaders are playing their part in providing an enjoyable and safe environment in which children can learn and thrive.
All courses are 3 hours in duration. Certificates of attendance will be issued on the night of the course. A fee of €15 applies per person. Participants must be over 18 years of age.
