Time to Listen
The NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit has developed Time to Listen (TTL), a training programme specifically for people who have a designated role in safeguarding within a sports setting. This new multi-sport training is delivered by Wiltshire and Swindon Sport and is available to clubs in the County.
TTL is a training course designed to equip designated persons at various levels within sporting organisations to fulfil their safeguarding responsibilities to children. This training is aimed at those who are designated club welfare officers and will cover all the essential elements of undertaking this key role. The training will include:
- Roles and responsibilities of the Club Welfare Officer,
- Core legislation and guidance
- Supporting your club
- National and local roles
