Online Training


Child Protection in Sport - a new e-learning course.

What is this new course about?

NSPCC's Child protection in sport online training course will give you and your staff a better understanding of how to recognise, respond, report and record concerns about a child.

Who is this course for?

This course is for anyone who comes into contact with children or families in their paid or volunteer work. It is an introductory course and you don’t need any specific child protection skills. 

The course provides a helpful introduction to child protection for anyone required by their club, organisation or sport governing body to attend a safeguarding workshop. It is a useful precursor to a face-to-face workshop. 

For all roles with regular responsibility for children, particularly coaches of children, an initial face-to-face course is most appropriate. Please see the Child Protection in Sport’s guidance for help in choosing the right training. 

EduCare has 30 years’ experience of delivering high-quality, cost-effective distance-learning on a wide range of essential subjects. Training programmes include safeguarding, health and safety, food hygiene, first aid, equality and diversity and professional development. Whatever the subject, we work with content experts to create online and paper-based training programmes that deliver need-to-know information quickly, easily and effectively.
