Boxing Scotland would like to inform you of some upcoming changes regarding coaching badges.
From January 1st 2022, all new coaching applications will need to provide a certificate proving they have completed a ‘Child Wellbeing and Protection in Sport’ workshop within the past three years.
This change does not affect coaches who have already received their badge for the 2021-2022 season.
However, we would like to give prior notice that ALL coaches will need to have completed the above CWPIS workshop within the past three years in order to receive their badge for the 2022-2023 season next summer.
This gives coaches a number of months notice in order to complete the workshop.
Please note, for the 2022-2023 season clubs will also have to have in place a Child Wellbeing and Protection Officer who has completed both the above course and the ‘Child Wellbeing and Protection Officer’ workshop within the past three years.
Boxing Scotland will be putting on more Child Protection workshops in 2022 to assist individuals to complete these, with dates to be published in the new year.
Please note, however, there is not a requirement to do this workshop through Boxing Scotland as it does not matter which sport/Local Authority is hosting the workshop, the course material is the same.
Please find below a link to a list of upcoming courses;
Any certificates should be e-mailed to your respective Regional Development Officer on completion.
