Sport Ireland has now gone live with on line Safeguarding 1 Refresher, a web based education resource aimed at providing further training to those who have previously attended a Safeguarding workshop or equivalent.
The web resource, which was developed in partnership with Sport Northern Ireland, was unveiled at a briefing event for National Children’s Officers in Dublin, which was addressed by representatives of National Governing Bodies for Sport.
The content contains four modules which will provide persons in roles with regular responsibility for children an opportunity to learn about: best practice procedure; understanding of why safeguarding children and young people in sport is important; recognising the different categories of child abuse and identify the signs of abuse; and the responding, recording and reporting issues of poor practice or abuse.

The web app can also be found on the Sport Ireland website home page in the Sport Ireland E Leaning Section. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me.
