Aquability provides face-to-face professional training on safeguarding and protecting children. Face-to-face training also allows coaches an opportunity to ask questions they may not otherwise be able to ask. They can do so to a trained expert in the area who can give them the advice they need in a safe, inclusive and non-judgemental environment.
A major benefit of Sport's Coach UK's flagship Safeguarding and Protecting Children workshop, developed in partnership with the NSPCC's Child Protection in Sport Unit
(CPSU), is that the content is updated regularly to reflect new threats that emerge.

This workshop will raise your awareness of the telltale 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.
