The two new online courses, 'Safeguarding For All' and 'Safeguarding Children', are designed to equip you with the knowledge on how to make the grassroots game a safe and welcoming environment for all.
Available to complete online via The Boot Room, both courses can be completed at a time and pace that suits you.
The 'Safeguarding For All' course provides a basic overview of the best and worst safeguarding practises, which will help you to safeguard children. If you have not completed a safeguarding qualification before, this course is an ideal starting point.
The 'Safeguarding Children Course' provides a more in-depth insight into safeguarding for all club representatives, coaches, referees and managers. Throughout the nine-course modules, you'll learn about how to deliver a secure environment for young people through a variety of interactive activities and questionnaires.
Alongside the introduction of the new safeguarding courses, The FA has also announced that their 'Welfare Officers Course' has now re-opened and is accepting new applicants. This course is mandatory for anyone wanting to be a Welfare Officer for their grassroots club or league.
