Keeping your child safe in sport e-learning course

Last updated: 22 Aug 2022

A free e-learning course for parents

We've designed this course to help you understand your role in keeping children safe in sport and to let you know who to turn to if you have any worries.

The course is free to take and is suitable for any parent of a child who takes part in sport, regardless of your level of safeguarding knowledge. It should take you around 10 minutes to complete.

How to use this course

If you're taking this course on mobile or a tablet, it works best if your device is turned sideways (landscape). 

You can use the buttons in the bottom right hand corner of the player window to turn on and off closed captions as desired. You can exit this course at any time by using the exit icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the window. Please note that, should you exit during the course, your progress will not be saved.

We've worked to ensure this course is accessible wherever possible by using subtitles and alt text for screen readers. Our accessibility work is ongoing and we're aware that some formats and the omission of Welsh closed captions will not suit everyone's accessibility needs. We are working to add these features in the future and will update this course when this work is complete.
