Tipperary Sports Partnership is facilitating a ‘Child Welfare & Protection in Sport Basic Awareness’ training. This course is aimed at sports leaders, children’s officers, parents or anyone working with young people in sport.
A central goal for all those involved in sport for young people is to provide a safe, positive and nurturing environment, where children can develop and enhance their physical and social skills.
Promoting a child-centred environment should go hand in hand with identifying and eliminating practices that impact negatively on safe and enjoyable participation in sport for young people.
The next series of workshops will be delivered by Sport Ireland tutors on October 19th, at the LIT Campus in Thurles, starting at 6.00pm sharp.
This training will enable Children’s Officers/Sports Leaders to:-
• Implement best practice in protecting the welfare of participants.
• Create a child-centred environment within the sports club.
• List categories of abuse and some indicators associated with abuse.
• Make an appropriate response to a disclosure.
• Make a report to designated officer or appropriate Statutory Authorities.
Prior registration with Tipperary Sports Partnership is necessary, so please contact them to obtain a registration form. A nominal fee of €15 is required to secure your place. Please book early as places will be limited on the workshop.
A ‘Certificate of Attendance’ will be awarded to those taking part on full completion of the course.
