IABA – Safeguarding 1 Workshops.

IABA is creating a Safeguarding training series throughout 2024, which will see the delivery of three Safeguarding 1 workshops between January and March. All adults – coaches, committee members and non-coaching volunteers – in every club who have contact with children are required to have undertaken Safeguarding 1.

These workshops will be available on Zoom on:

January 26th at 1pm

February 23rd at 1pm

March 29th at 1pm

Book your place here

The calendar for the period April to December will be published in February. From April onwards, IABA will make available a minimum 2 workshops per month. Acknowledging that club members have a variety of schedules and that no one time will be best for all, a percentage of courses will take place in the evenings, a percentage during weekday lunchtimes and a percentage on Saturdays. Workshops on Safeguarding 2 and Safeguarding 3 will be made available later in 2024.

In keeping with Sport Ireland best practice in Safeguarding training, workshops will be limited to 16 participants. In keeping with norms across the sporting community, the cost for this workshop is E15. Registration for each course will close 2 days before the date, and those who’ve registered will be sent payment information. The participation reservation will expire if payment is not received by 5pm on the scheduled day of the workshop.

Refresher: For all club members who have completed Safeguarding 1 training, but who wish to refresh their knowledge, the online Sport Ireland Safeguarding 1 refresher course is available here
