COURSE DETAILS

We are getting ready to launch a new online Safeguarding Children course in Spring 2021.

We are currently redeveloping this course as an online learning module, that you can complete at a time that suits you.

This new course supports The FA’s strategic goal to raise standards across the game and will provide club representatives, coaches, referees and volunteers with an awareness of best practice in safeguarding children in football.

Focused on making football safe, the course will help you learn how to recognise signs and symptoms of abuse, while understanding fears involved in these concerns.

The FA Safeguarding Children Course is designed for anyone that works with young people.

Register your interest in this course today and be the first to know when we launch.
