EduCare for Sport: Clubs and Leisure

Sports clubs and leisure providers have a duty to ensure players and participants are well looked after and protected from harm. As well as maintaining high levels of health and safety, and understanding how to administer first aid, organisations are increasingly focused on employing the right people and need to be confident all staff know how to spot signs of abuse and understand how to report concerns.

EduCare's package of online Safeguarding and Duty of Care courses has been designed to do just that. This 'Clubs and Leisure' version of the service contains a broad range of online Safeguarding and Duty of Care training courses including Child Protection, Safer Recruitment and Safeguarding Young People, as well as courses on Concussion Awareness and First Aid. This larger package of courses also includes content on Mental Wellbeing and Preventing Bullying - key courses to protect participant welfare.

The content of all the courses in the package is kept up-to-date with latest legislation and is written, reviewed or endorsed by experts. Staff will always be knowledgeable of key duty of care issues and organisations will be able to provide evidence of their learning to governing bodies.

Each course is designed to impart essential information and motivate staff to take action if they suspect something is wrong – whatever their role or responsibility. 

EduCare for Sport: Clubs and Leisure contains courses that would
cost over £350 per learner if bought individually.

By buying as one package, the cost is £75 per learner and further discounts can be made for buying for a group, club or larger organisation.
