Putting Policy and Procedures into Practice within Sport and Activity
Using group discussion and case study scenarios, this session is designed to be an extension of the third module in the Safeguarding Adults in Sport Level 3 training course- Putting Policy and Procedures into Practice.
Who is this session for?
Lead Safeguarding Officers and Deputies in NGBs and Active Partnerships in England and those in activity settings with responsibility for receiving and acting on safeguarding adult concerns,
You must have completed ACT Safeguarding Adults in Sport and Activity Level 3 training prior to attending the CPD session.
There are three CPD Case Study sessions planned through the year and four Level 3 training courses, so if you have not yet completed the Level 3 course, there is still plenty time to complete it before booking onto a CPD session later in the year.
Aim of the session
To offer you the opportunity to engage in continual professional development to increase your application of knowledge and understanding in Safeguarding Adults in sport and activity.
- Increase your confidence in how to respond to safeguarding adult concerns.
- Develop your practical application of policy and procedures in a safe, confidential and supportive environment.
- Reinforce your understanding, role and responsibilities when receiving and responding to safeguarding adult concerns and making safeguarding adult referrals to the Local Authority.

This session will explore:
How to put your policies and procedures into practice using case studies;
- How you feel about specific scenarios
- The issues that you need to consider
- The actions you may need to take
In addition, there will be the opportunity for you to bring examples of (anonymous) scenarios you have managed or are in the process of managing in order to share and discuss your learning or seek the groups input. The session will be predominantly group work based and attendees will be asked to actively engage in the session as much as possible.
