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:


CPSU and NSPCC training

CPSU podcasts
Listen to our latest podcast and find out about previous CPSU podcasts.

CPSU webinars 
Sign up for our free webinars or catch up with recordings, presentations and other resources from previous online events. We've also collaborated on a free e-learning course, 'I'm involved', to help you put young people's views at the heart of your sport.

NSPCC training and consultancy 
Grow your child-protection knowledge and skills with CPD-certified courses delivered by our experts nationwide and online. These include the Child protection in sport course, an online introductory safeguarding course for anyone who has infrequent contact with children in a sports organisation.

Sometimes organisations need more specific help and advice and that's where our NSPCC consultancy team can help - we work together with your organisation to provide tailored support.
