SAFEGUARDING AND PROTECTING CHILDREN WORKSHOPS
The PGA, England Golf and Golf Foundation are part of the Children in Golf Strategy Group that has been formed to help golf address the issue of child protection. It is essential that those working at the “sharp end” of golf delivery for young people are informed about child protection issues and how it affects the way they work.
The Children in Golf group has worked with sportscoachUK to offer the Safeguarding and Protecting Children workshop to those involved with junior golf. It is universally recognised within sport and local authorities as an appropriate form of training for sports coaches and volunteers. (PGA professionals receive 25 CPD points for attendance. 5 CPD points are also awarded by the GCMA to Secretary/Managers)
Venue: Edgbaston Golf Club
Date: Thursday 24thJanuary
