What Is SafeGuard Core?

SafeGuard Core is a bespoke safeguarding training course for fencing, replacing the England and Wales specific UK Coaching safeguarding training that BF previously accepted until July 2023.

The workshop will be delivered through a virtual classroom and will take three hours.

Who should attend Core?

Registered and in-training Coaches, Welfare Officers and Team Managers in England and Wales who need to renew their safeguarding certificates or attend the course for the first time.

Please note: Core is not the only course required for Welfare Officers to become registered; they will also have to meet further requirements to do so.
