Swim England Safeguarding CPD ‘reflects needs of our sports’

Post Publication Note
1 Apr 2020 Swim England South West has announced it has been able to finalise some safeguarding workshops which will be run online to enable club workforces to be able to upskill in a time where they are unable to run face to face workshops. 

Please note there is a limit on numbers of attendees so it is important to book early to secure your place

Online courses will be delivered throughout April on the following dates: 
  • Sat 11 April (11am - 1pm)
  • Sat 18 April (11am - 1pm)
  • Sat 25 April  (11am - 1pm)
  • Friday 17 April  (3pm - 5pm)
  • Friday 24 April  (3pm - 5pm)

Please download, complete and return their booking form to Christine Vickery (chris.vickery@swimming.org). 

We hope that you will be able to attend and urge you to keep checking their website for further workshops and courses.

Set for launch on 6 April 2020, Swim England’s new Safeguarding CPD has been developed by the National Governing Body’s Child Safeguarding, Qualifications and Educator Training teams.

The result? An in-depth and relevant CPD created specifically for aquatics teachers and coaches.

The course will be available as an online session to complete from home – and is focused on aquatics, as Jenni Dearman, Swim England’s National Child Safeguarding Manager, explained:. “The CPD has been written for any role within our sports that requires an enhanced DBS disclosure.”

Access safeguarding advice

“The course is relevant whatever your role within our sports rather than being tailored to coaching or teaching. That was a key area raised in the feedback received about non Swim England courses. The Swim England Safeguarding CPD is bespoke and reflects the needs of our sports.”

Learners will gain an insight into safeguarding issues, how to deal with those concerns and how to access support and advice.

The CPD will also be accepted for club SwimMark submissions and is an integral part of Swim England’s Stronger Affiliation process. This introduces new measures for affiliated clubs aimed at ensuring the safety of members.

Head to the Swimming Qualifications (Swim England) Facebook group to access regular updates ahead of the CPD’s launch.
