Interim Safe Hands Training
Cricket Wales recognises that
the delivery of face to face Safe Hands Courses for Club Welfare Officers
cannot be completed at present. We are conscious however that there are
some clubs who either have a new CWO or who may need refresher training.
To that end the ECB have agreed that a temporary online process will be put
into action until further notice. This process is as follows:
All Club Welfare Officers
either new to their role or due for renewal before the 31st July
2020 should complete the free, online Safeguarding Young Cricketers
Course (SYC). We will arrange access for them in due course. For
those that have already completed the SYC course for another role, there
is no requirement to repeat the SYC Course.
To cover the additional
learning required for the CWO role, the ECB are creating a webinar
which will also need to be completed. The pilot is still a work in
progress but we hope to have details shortly.
accreditation will be valid for 12 months by which time we hope
that the standard face-to-face Safe Hands training will
be available again.
Clubs in this position should
speak with their League Welfare Officers who will collate details. Once
the full process is known, Cricket Wales will be in touch.
