EduCare for Sport: Volunteers in Sport

We have produced a smaller package of safeguarding and duty of care training courses specifically for people who work at a volunteer level in sport. EduCare for Sport: Volunteers is designed to give access to high-quality content, ensuring that all volunteers know how to help keep children and young people safe.

The courses cover essential safeguarding knowledge and also stretches into the broader scope of Duty of Care, providing expertly written content on Preventing Bullying and Mental Wellbeing as well as helping with injuries sustained from concussion.

EduCare for Sport: Volunteers contains courses that would cost over £80 per learner if bought individually. By buying as one package, the cost is just £40 per learner and further discounts can be made for buying for a group, club or larger organisation.
