Safeguarding 1 On Line Refresher

IntroductionSquare header

Sport Ireland has now gone live with an 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 refresher course content was developed by Sport Ireland and Sport Northern Ireland in collaboration with welfare officers from a number of National Governing Bodies for Sport.

  1. The learning from this course can be beneficial for all roles with regular responsibility for children, including parents; the content can be useful as a precursor to a face-to-face workshop.
  2. Please bookmark this address to your browser, you can then return to the online resource if you do not complete all four modules in one visit or at a later stage to access some of the resources.
  3. There are 4 different modules of differing length and detail covering the principles of best practice, an awareness of concerns of abuse and the reporting process.
  4. There is a digital test at the end of the four modules that you need to complete to be awarded the certificate. This requires a pass mark of 80% to be successful.
  5. You will be given the opportunity to read text and watch information clips and to check your knowledge before completing the digital test
  6. You can complete the full learning in one visit or you can return using a bookmark.
