About The Course

Awarded by The FA, this short 3 hour course provides club representatives, coaches, referees and volunteers with an awareness of best practice in safeguarding children in football. The course supports The FA’s strategic goal to raise standards across the game.

The FA Safeguarding Children Workshop is designed for anyone that works with young people.

Focused on making football safe, the course will help you learn how to recognise signs and symptoms of abuse, while understand fears involved in these concerns.

Section 1: Best practice

Section 2: What is poor practice? What is abuse?

Section 3: What to do about poor practice and abuse

Section 4: What next?

Outcomes

The workshop will raise your awareness and specifically help you to be able to:

  • Identify and build on best practice in football
  • Recognise signs of abuse and identify what behaviour causes concern
  • Identify the actions to take if you have a concern and who can help
  • Develop your action plan for change
