Welcome to FIFA Guardians™ Embedding Safeguarding Practice
This course is for Global Football Community Learners and Open Learners and is part of the FIFA Guardians™ Safeguarding in Sport Award.
This course extends your knowledge of some central safeguarding topics and explains some new principles and practices.
The aim is to provide you with the knowledge to help you embed safeguarding practice across your organisation and build your range of experience.
This course consists of approximately 20 hours of online learning and quizzes, which can be completed at your own pace. Throughout, examples of good practice are used to both learn from and help you build support in your organisation and beyond.
This course is free and open to all, you are welcome to study it without enrolling. If you want to earn a FIFA/Open University digital badge for your learning, you’ll need to enrol.
Once you have done so, you’ll be returned to this screen.
Before you start the course there are three statements you must click on and respond to. One is to confirm that your age is appropriate for you to study the course. The second is a declaration about your eligibility to work with children. The third is to state your involvement, or not, with football.
Please note: If you are a FIFA-approved learner, you need to enrol on the FIFA Learner pathway and not here.
