Child Protection Workshop Dates
Bowls Scotland work in partnership with Children 1st to deliver Child Protection workshops throughout the year in a variety of locations.
Between February and mid-April 2018 Bowls Scotland ran eight Safeguarding and Protecting Children workshops with over 100 club volunteers attending. We also ran three In Safe Hands workshops with 38 Child Protection Officers/club members in attendance.
We are in the process of confirming more workshops so please check back here soon to see when and where the courses will run.
Safeguarding and Protecting Children
Protect yourself, the young people you are coaching and your club by understanding and following good coaching practice. Learn about child abuse and how to handle situations if you have concerns.
In Safe Hands
This three-hour workshop supports clubs to put child protection policies into practice. It is most suitable for those acting as a club's child protection officer but is also relevant for those responsible for managing and organising clubs and groups. Candidates should attend a Safeguarding and Protecting Children workshop prior to attending the In Safe Hands workshop.
The cost of both workshops is £10 per Bowls Scotland or SIBA Member and £25 for non-members. Participants must be aged 16 or over on the date of the workshops.
More dates and venues for these courses can be found here.
