Children’s Officer Training

Safeguarding 2 – Club Children’s Officer (CCO) Workshop – a must for all Club Children’s Officers

A Club Children’s Officer should be child centered in focus and have as the primary aim the establishment of a child centered ethos within the club. S/he is the link between the children and the adults in the club.  S/he also takes responsibility for monitoring and reporting to the Club Management Committee on how club policy impacts on young people and Sports Leaders
