Safeguarding Training & Education

Training

CSOs will be supported by the WRU Club Operations Team and will have the opportunity to develop their skills and abilities in dealing with safeguarding matters through a variety of training opportunities. When a club volunteer is recruited as a CSO they will receive a Starter Pack from the Club Operations Team, and also a briefing from the WRU Safeguarding Advisor, which can be completed in person or over the telephone as part of the CSO Induction. The CSO will be briefed on the following issues:

  • Roles and Responsibilities

  • Policy and Guidance

  • Recruitment of Volunteers (DBS and SRG Process)

  • Case Management Panel Investigations

CSOs will also have the opportunity for continuous professional development, and are required to attend safeguarding training courses such as 'Safeguarding and Protecting Children' and 'Time to Listen' that are delivered in partnership with Sports Coach UK and the NSPCC.

There will be other training opportunities for prospective coaches with a module on safeguarding on the Level One Coach Education Courses, and also supplementary training through a bespoke WRU training resource for coaches. The Club Operations Team also deliver basic safeguarding awareness training for all club volunteers, through the Club Volunteer Safeguarding Workshops.

If you have any safeguarding training requirements, please contact the WRU Safeguarding Advisor.
