SAFEGUARDING & PROTECTING CHILDREN and
SAFE HANDS WORKSHOP (previously known as TIME TO LISTEN)
Training for NEW Club Welfare Officers (CWOs) has two elements, both of which involve an evening training workshop. Firstly, CWOs need to attend Safeguarding and Protecting Children (SPC), which provides core knowledge around generic safeguarding / welfare issues. Following this, the Safe Hands Workshop (SH) is cricket specific and provides full details of the ECB’s Safe Hands policy and requirements for clubs. Combined, these workshops provide a training pack to enable welfare officers to acquire the core knowledge and develop their skills in order to fulfil their role and responsibilities. We have also arranged a refresher course for EXISTING CWOs at HOVE in APRIL 2013.
The SPC Course (or equivalent Training) is a prerequisite for the Safe Hands workshop
A trained CWO is a requirement for Clubmark accreditation and for all adult league clubs.
