Sport Ireland has now gone live with an on line Safeguarding 1 Refresher, a web based education resource aimed at providing further training to those who have previously attended a Safeguarding workshop or equivalent.
The content contains four modules which will provide persons in roles with regular responsibility for children an opportunity to learn about:
i. best practice procedure;
ii. understanding of why safeguarding children and young people in sport is important;
iii. recognising the different categories of child abuse and identify the signs of abuse;
iv. and the responding, recording and reporting issues of poor practice or abuse.
The web app can also be found on the Sport Ireland website home page in the Sport Ireland E-Leaning Section.
