EduCare for Sport is an online learning service, which includes 11 duty of care programmes that will support the running and governance of your club.
The service is designed to help you ensure that your club is always fully up-to-date on all essential areas of your duty of care; from safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults, through to first aid essentials and preventing bullying.
Development Manager for Clubs and Volunteers at British Cycling, Andrew Chaston, said: “We’d like to help all British Cycling Go-Ride clubs to ensure they’re adhering to minimum standards in safeguarding and protecting children, as well as meeting their duty of care to all members.
“EduCare for Sport provides excellent guidance for all volunteers and gives them the ability to assist the welfare officer in maintaining a safe and supportive environment for members. The online modules are easy to access, easy to use and can be completed at the volunteer’s own pace.”
Open to all, the training can be accessed by committee members, coaches, paid staff, volunteers and parents and is available from any computer, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.
