England Football have launched two grassroots development opportunities which can be completed online - the Safeguarding Children and Introduction to First Aid in Football Courses.
The safeguarding course is suitable for anyone working with young people in football, while the Introduction to First Aid has been designed to provide the latest information and advice on how to support a trained first aider in the event of someone needing medical attention. Both are available via the ever-growing Boot Room portal.
Safeguarding Children Course
This new course is suitable for anyone working with young people in football. It costs £30 and takes around 90-120 minutes to complete.
The Safeguarding Children Course forms part of England Football’s ongoing commitment to make the game safe for all. England Football firmly believe children of all ages and backgrounds have the right to play football in a secure, fun and enjoyable environment; protecting their welfare is the responsibility of us all.
As safeguarding legislation and advice evolves, England Football want to ensure their courses are continually improving to support all coaches, volunteers, managers and club representatives. Taking this course means playing a part in raising standards across the game.
You’ll be able to identify best practice and poor practice while engaging with videos and quizzes to test your knowledge along the way. Find out more and sign-up today at The Boot Room via this link.
Introduction to First Aid in Football Course
The new Introduction to First Aid in Football Course has been designed to provide the latest information and advice on how you can support a trained first aider in the event of someone needing medical attention.
As medical emergencies can happen at any time in football, it is crucial that those in a position of care are able to react quickly and effectively should a situation arise. This course, delivered entirely online, will help you to protect the welfare of others and contribute to a safer game.
Medical guidance is always improving in football, and particularly in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, being able to deliver the appropriate level of care is crucial. The course costs £30 and can be done in your own time, at a pace which suits you.
It should take around 90-120 minutes to complete. Find out more and sign-up today at The Boot Room via this link.
