Triathlon Scotland - Child Wellbeing & Protection in Sport Renewal Award
Child Wellbeing & Protection in Sport (CWPS) Renewal
The Child Wellbeing & Protection in Sport (CWPS) Renewal award is ONLY available as an update to the CWPS Training Course (ie you must have completed the full CWPS training up to 3 years previously, to be able to access the renewal course). This online self-directed course allows you to renew your CWPS without having to attend a classroom style session.
The renewal award consists of 3 modules:
Module 1 – Everyone must complete this one - Same as the CWPS course, which includes child safeguarding and definitions; rights of a child; professional and moral responsibilities; code of conduct
Then complete two from the following three modules:
The Safeguarding Children in a Digital World eLearning Module contains new knowledge based around safeguarding children in today's modern electronic environment.
The Introduction to Inclusive Practice eLearning Module is based on the popular course developed by our partners at Scottish Disability Sport (SDS) and provides a basic introduction into good practice when encouraging disability inclusivity in sporting activities.
The Child Mental Health and Wellbeing eLearning Module is designed to increase understanding around what is meant by ‘mental health and wellbeing’, it introduces some of the common mental health problems for children and young people and helps provide an understanding of who to signpost to.
The CWPS renewal award is valid for 3 years, after which time you are required to complete the virtual/classroom CWPS award.
