Online Safeguarding Awareness Training – goes live 4th August New England Rugby

Introduction to Safeguarding eLearning Course

We are really pleased to announce this new free eLearning course. To ensure that all those in a position of trust have an understanding of safeguarding before they start in their role, from August it will be compulsory for anyone who requires DBS clearance to first complete the Introduction to Safeguarding eLearning course. The course is FREE, open to all and will be recorded on GMS.

It will take about 30 minutes and must be completed by those making new DBS applications, those renewing their certificates and anyone wishing to participate in the England Rugby Coaching or Refereeing Award courses. We strongly recommend that all coaches, referees and volunteers working with children and young people complete this course before rugby activity resumes this season.

This course does not replace Play it Safe, but ensures that everyone, without exception, has a grasp of the basics in relation to safeguarding, including being able to recognise the signs of abuse and knowing how to report concerns. Play it Safe will build on that knowledge.

To book onto the course you will need your personal GMS login details and it will appear on your GMS profile 14 - 21 days after completion.

Access the Introduction to Safeguarding eLearning course through the course finder.
