The NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit has developed Time to Listen (TTL), a training programme specifically for people who have a designated role in safeguarding within a sports setting. This new multi-sport training is delivered by Wiltshire and Swindon Sport and is available to clubs in the County. 

TTL is a training course designed to equip designated persons at various levels within sporting organisations to fulfil their safeguarding responsibilities to children. This training is aimed at those who are designated club welfare officers and will cover all the essential elements of undertaking this key role. The training will include; roles and responsibilities of the Club Welfare Officer, core legislation and guidance, supporting your club. National and local roles.

Participants should have undertaken either the UK Coaching Safeguarding and Protecting Children 1 or Local Authority equivalent awareness training. Participants should also check their NGB does not require them to attend the sport specific version of this training. 

Please note the following NGB’s accept this training for Welfare Officers:

Every child deserves to enjoy their sport. This workshop will raise your awareness of the tell-tale signs of abuse, and give you the tools and confidence you need to deal with any issues sensitively, appropriately and effectively should the need ever arise in your coaching career.

You will be able to:

  • identify and recognise good coaching practice and the implications for your coaching
  • explore your values and feelings in relation to child abuse, and recognise their potential impact on your response
  • recognise and respond to possible signs of child abuse
  • take appropriate action if concerns about a child arise.
