UK Coaching
  • UK Coaching Safeguarding course has been updated & relaunched 
In partnership with the NSPCC's Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU), UK Coaching have revised their Safeguarding & Protecting Children courses & accompanying resources. This ensures that coaches will benefit from the most up-to-date information & guidance on recognising signs of possible child abuse, lower levels of concern & poor practice, and how to respond & report incidents when on the course. Learn more by clicking here.
  • How coaches are cared for survey with Liverpool John Moores University
Liverpool John Moores University (led by Dr Colum Cronin) are currently working with UK Coaching on a research project exploring how coaches are cared for and how organisations can help them flourish. This is an important topic because it is well established that retaining coaches is a challenge, and research also demonstrates coaches experiencing burnout. The survey is for coaches from all sports to complete and asks them about their experiences and what care they may need. Click here to learn more & take part in the survey.
