Focused on making football safe, the course will help you learn how to recognise signs and symptoms of abuse, while understand fears involved in these concerns.

Section 1: Best practice

Section 2: What is poor practice? What is abuse?

  • Develop your action plan for change

The FA Safeguarding certificate needs to be renewed every 3 years. It is essential that volunteers, coaches and referees involved in youth football hold an up to date and current Safeguarding certificate so if yours is expiring soon it needs to be renewed.

If you have not done the Safeguarding course previously then you first need to attend the course in person. However once you have attended the course you can either renew it in person or online. It is recommended for those renewing to take the online course. For details and links to the online Safeguarding workshop please click here
