I need to renew my safeguarding children training, what should I do?

If you have completed The FA Safeguarding Children Workshop before you will be able to complete The FA Safeguarding Children re-certification – click here to do so. 


If your previous safeguarding children training was the Introduction to Safeguarding, you’ll need to wait for the new safeguarding children option that is due to be launched in the Spring. 


In the interim there are two free online courses that can help fill the gap. 

  • The FA Playmaker, supported by BT. This is our new, free online entry-level football course perfect for anyone interested in taking a more active role in grassroots football. It includes a safeguarding element that’s useful for anyone thinking of taking up football coaching or who is an unqualified coach
  • The FA Safeguarding for All. This is the safeguarding element from the Playmaker as a standalone module. This is useful for people who just want an introduction to safeguarding, such as parent helpers, new assistant coaches, or administrators.
