Training & Courses

Introductory training

Everyone can benefit from taking an introductory course, such as the NSPCC’s e-learning course Child protection in sport and physical activity training. These courses provide basic information only but are sufficient for those with:

  • no contact with children and young people
  • incidental contact with children and young people
  • regular contact with children and young people but no direct responsibility for them

Introductory training is also a useful precursor for anyone who will be going on to take basic or specialist training.
