The qualification provides learners with the knowledge to identify a safeguarding concern, listen and appropriately record a disclosure, and report to the appropriate person.
Safeguarding is a ‘Minimum Deployment Requirement' for many governing bodies of sport.
These requirements are seen as the basic standards every coach needs to meet to carry out their role safely and effectively.
It can also be attended by all those responsible for organising children’s sport (eg within governing bodies of sport, local authorities,
sports and leisure centres, and sports clubs) and those who lead or deliver children’s sport programmes (eg coaches, leaders, instructors,
development officials, administrators, volunteers and parents), anyone who undertakes these roles on a voluntary basis.
