About the course
We are pleased to offer our Safeguarding Children Course as an online training module to complete at a time that suits you. This course has replaced the Safeguarding Children Workshop.
As part of our strategic goal to raise standards across the game, The FA is committed to safeguarding children in England. From ensuring best practice and recognising poor practice to understanding how to report concerns quickly and effectively, we believe that making football fun, enjoyable and safe is everyone’s responsibility.

This online safeguarding course is designed to give you an understanding of safeguarding concerns, as well as how to provide a secure environment for young people.
Upon completion of the course, you’ll receive a Safeguarding Children qualification and certificate that will appear on your FAN account and will be valid for two years. You can return to the course to refresh your knowledge at any time. After two years, you can recertify your qualification for free by completing our Safeguarding Children Recertification which will be valid for a further two years.
