Time to Listen

Time to Listen is a netball-specific workshop designed to support Club Safeguarding Officers.  The workshop uses easy to follow, practical netball-related examples and case studies to enable you to fully understand your role in the club, and England Netball, and how you can effectively safeguard young people in your care. Time to Listen is developed by England Netball and the Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) of the NSPCC.

All CAPS clubs’ Club Safeguarding Officers (CSOs) are now required to attend a Time to Listen Course by 1st April 2015 as part of the CAPS criteria.  Netball East are running 2 courses in the region between now and April 2015. We would advise clubs not to leave this too late as you may run the risk of not being able to get on a course.

To be able to attend the Time to Listen all attendees must first have attended the Sports Coach UK Safeguarding and Protecting Children, or equivalent, workshop as Time to Listen builds on this training.  If you need to find a SCUK course, please contact Nas, East Regional Coordinator on the details below or your county NDO, local authority or CSP (county sports partnership).
