British Fencing want fencing to be a sport where everyone involved can have fun and feel safe.  We are offering two interactive workshops which will help people across the sport to understand more about their roles and how safeguarding applies to them.

Our day comes in two parts.  In the morning we are offering “En Garde Ready” (EGR) this is for anyone – fencer, parent, coach, armourer or referee. It will take you on a journey through what safeguarding is, how it applies to you and what tools there are out there to help you with your role.   The afternoon will be taken up with Team Manager (TM) Training which is for anyone who is or wants to become a TM.   EGR is a pre-requisite to attend this workshop

Ideal prerequisites for joining the TM course (please indicate if you have not done any of the requirements for being a licensed British Fencing team manager) and note that this will be required before deployment:-

  • A valid DBS certificate, obtained via British Fencing and with at least 12 months remaining
  • Attendance certificate for a Safeguarding and Protecting Children course, with at least 12 months remaining

Outcomes of TM Workshop:

  • Risk assessment and situation management.
