Safeguarding for Specialist Roles

‘Safeguarding for Specialist Roles’ is the ECB’s new online safeguarding course. The new course ‘Safeguarding for Specialist Roles’ replaces Safeguarding Young Cricketers, and is designed to support individuals in cricket who are working with children and young people.

‘Safeguarding for Specialist Roles’ is made up of one 60-minute module, suitable for everybody whatever their role in cricket, and four shorter bolt-on modules:

Individuals in cricket are invited to complete the one-hour module, followed by the shorter module that best reflects their role. Individuals are welcome to complete all four bolt-on modules if they wish. Safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility, and the new course aims to provide everyone in cricket with knowledge and advice to create a safe environment and respond appropriately to concerns.

Please note that the course also forms one of the required qualifications for a Club Safeguarding Officer. For a full list of requirements of CSOs, visit our Club Safeguarding Officers page.
