★CoB Child safeguarding Updates★

Hi Folks

Some news re CoB Child safeguarding. Please read carefully.

  • The necessity to re-take the Safeguarding course after a period of 3 years does not apply at this time.

 

  • This period has been temporarily extended to 5 years.

 

  • Persons who have completed the course within the past 5 years can be directed to partake in the online refresher course. Similarly, should any mentors have previously attended an accredited Safeguarding course run by Sport Ireland or another sporting body within the last 5 years, they can partake in the Gaa refresher course and this will suffice for them to take on Gaa duties.

 

  • If anyone needs to do the course (new members) please let us know. With the ever changing environment and rules, there has been a relaxation in the restrictions on face to face training courses. It is now possible to proceed with a face to face training course in the club, albeit with some strict conditions.

 

Thanks very much.
