Workshops and CPDs
Team Manager Module One
The Team Manager 1 Workshop is aimed at those who are starting out on their volunteering journey and focuses on single day competitions or camps where there is no overnight stay. It covers all aquatic disciplines and will be delivered via a two and a half hour online workshop hosted on Zoom.
A requirement of Club Affiliation/SwimMark is that all workforce within the club who are in regular contact with young people and are required to complete a DBS check if they are 16 years or above; these people must also complete a Safeguarding CPD once they are 18 years old. Please contact your club development officer, or WavePower if you are unsure regarding safeguarding requirements. Safeguarding courses should be completed every 3 years. Swim England launched their own Safeguarding CPD earlier this year which is now available online with many workshops to choose from.
Swim England has linked up with the NSPCC and is accredited to deliver the Time to Listen module, which is aimed at Club Welfare Officers. The Time to Listen programme provides the opportunity to acquire key knowledge necessary for the role and responsibilities of a CWO, to adopt a child-focused approach to safeguarding and to learn about the action/s which should be taken should any incident occur. You must have completed an approved Safeguarding workshop to attend this course. All welfare officers must complete this course. You must be 18+ to attend.
