Training and events

Develop your knowledge and skills in safeguarding and protecting children and young people in sport with CPSU webinars, conferences and other training events.

There are currently no formal qualifications specifically for safeguarding children in sport. However, a number of organisations have developed courses to help you and your team to keep children safe. Whether you're a beginner or a specialist, we can point you in the right direction:
