The RYA is running a number of SportsCoach UK Safeguarding and Protecting Children (SPC) workshops at various locations around the English regions over the next few weeks.
The workshop is suitable for anyone involved in supporting children’s training and activities.
To find your nearest workshop and book your place (price £15 inc. VAT), please visit the Safeguarding Training page on our website. If none of the dates or venues are convenient, the website also has information on other training opportunities.
Please note that attendance at an SPC workshop will not be accepted in place of completing the online ‘Safe + Fun’ course required for new Instructor, Senior Instructor and Racing Coach candidates, but it will be useful for existing instructors and coaches as well as for club volunteers who assist with children’s sailing but are not instructors.
Don’t forget the ‘Safe + Fun’ poster which can be downloaded or ordered free of charge from the RYA to display on your noticeboard. There is also a sample Club Code of Conduct in the RYA’s Safeguarding Guidelines which can be adopted, or amended as required, to ensure that young people, parents and volunteers understand what’s expected of them.
