This online course provides a fresh approach to safeguarding within sport, delivering a different and more positive message about safeguarding. In the course, Coaches and others in the club are encouraged to consider the subjects covered in the context of how it impacts on the children they interact with.

The course covers:

  • How coaches should approach the daily challenges they face around dealing with discipline in the gym
  • How to improve your stretching in a safe way
  • Things to consider when handling participants
  • Practical guidance on safe travel and transport
  • Considerations to keep the children in your club working towards their peak levels of ability while minimising the risk of injury
  • You will observe a panel of experts who will share their views and advice on how to deal with the more frequent challenges coaches and clubs face.

    You will also have a chance to refresh your knowledge with the important information from every safeguarding course; specifically, what signs to recognise that could mean that a child is at risk of harm and how and who you should approach to communicate any concerns you have.

    The online activities should only take around 2 - 3 hours to complete, concluding with a challenging scenario to consolidate your learning. Once complete your award will remain valid for three years.

    To be eligible for this course you must be over 18 and have previously completed a face-to-face safeguarding course.

    The course can be accessed through the British Gymnastics Academy once your payment has been completed. We will send you a link to the course by email once your enrollment is completed.
