For those who are not already aware, the 'Getting it right in child protection' training course cancelled from last year has been re-organised for January on 2 dates:
Thursday 13th January 6.30-9pm in Ormlie Community Centre.
Friday 14th 9.30 - 12noon in Wick Assembly Rooms.
The SCA/BCU intend that child protection training will eventually become mandatory for coaches. I am sure it is also good practice for anyone else interacting with children at the club to attend.
Unfortunately, the Thurso date is a club night, so we need to make sure we don't have all coaches attending at the same time! Myself and Kim could do with attending and I would need to attend on the Thursday night. If we are short of coaches, then I could look to do some training at the SCA Club Coach Development weekend instead.
Could I ask that all club coaches interested in attending on the Thursday let me know, so we can check this doesn't threaten the novice session.
For anyone interested in the course, the contact I have is Claire Collins at Highlandkcs@aol.com.
