Children and young people are the future of our industry, we all have a duty to safeguard their welfare and they have a right to enjoy equestrianism in a fun and safe environment and be protected from harm.
All Accredited Professional Coaches are required to complete a Safeguarding Course in order to remain an Accredited Professional Coach. This revamped BEF Safeguarding course is valid for three years. There will be a phasing in period where Accredited Professional Coaches will be asked to complete a course by a certain date, depending on their existing course date.
The course, which is open to everyone who works or volunteers with children, is 3 hours long and all course material is provided. It will be delivered by a current SportsScotland coach.
Cost: FREE for BHS Accredited Professional Coaches, £20 for all others
