Safeguarding Children Course & Introduction To First Aid In Football Launch



We are delighted to announce that England Football has launched two new courses that are now available to complete online:



Safeguarding Children Course


This new course is suitable for anyone working with young people in football. It costs £30 and takes around 90-120 minutes to complete.


The Safeguarding Children Course forms part of our ongoing commitment to make the game safe for all. We firmly believe that children of all ages and backgrounds have the right to play football in a secure, fun and enjoyable environment; protecting their welfare is the responsibility of us all.


As Safeguarding legislation and advice evolves, we want to ensure that our courses are continually improving so we can support all of our coaches, volunteers, managers and club representatives.


In taking this course, you will be playing your part in raising standards across the game. You’ll be able to identify best practice and poor practice while engaging with videos and quizzes to test your knowledge along the way.

Introduction to First Aid in Football Course


The new Introduction to First Aid in Football course has been designed to provide the latest information and advice on how you can support a trained first aider in the event of someone needing medical attention.


As medical emergencies can happen at any time in football, it is crucial that those in a position of care are able to react quickly and effectively should a situation arise. This course, delivered entirely online, will help you to protect the welfare of others and contribute to a safer game.


Medical guidance is always improving in football, and particularly in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, being able to deliver the appropriate level of care is crucial.


The course costs £30 and can be done in your own time, at a pace that suits you. It should take around 90-120 minutes to complete.
