Safeguarding / First Aid / DBS
Whether you are a qualified coach, soon to be a qualified coach or a Club Welfare Officer there are a number of pre-requisites you must have in place in order for you to be compliant on safeguarding.
Coaches require an in date DBS, First Aid and Safeguarding Young Cricketers certificate
Club Welfare Officers require an in date DBS, Safe Hands certificate, Safeguarding & Protecting Children’s certificate. If this person is a qualified coach then a Safeguarding Young Cricketers certificate will be sufficient.
To be a qualified cricket coach you must attend an ECB approved First Aid course every three years. In Gloucestershire the courses are run by the GCB’s approved First Aid provider, Malcolm Griffiths of Crucial First Aid. If you have an existing First Aid qualification from work or coaching different sports and want to check if this covers you to coach cricket please email Theresa.email@example.com
