The Western Warriors is delighted to be able to offer a CPD opportunity to all coaches within the west region, via a coach support workshop. The workshop will focus on the theme of batting against spin and will be based around the Western Warriors Under 14 training session on Sunday the 3rd of March 2019. Please see the online poster for more details. If you know of any coach who might be interested in attending this workshop, please let them know it is on.
Cricket Scotland has contacted clubs noting, “Colin McDougall will be delivering child wellbeing and protection training at Titwood on Sunday the 20th of January 2019. Two separate sessions will be delivered on the day:
10am to 1pm: “In Safe Hands 1”
This will incorporate specific guidance on the Cricket Scotland Club Child Protection Policy.
This course is aimed at club Child Protection Officers, Junior Convenors, etc.
1.30pm to 3pm: “PVG training”
This is aimed at clubs who have not yet engaged and clubs where the person undertaking the CPO role has changed since the initial training.
We would strongly encourage clubs to make use of this opportunity. Numbers are restricted to twenty for each course so could you please reply to Iain Murdoch by close of business on Thursday the 18th of January 2019 with names for each of the courses.”
Colin McDougall hosted a safeguarding and protecting children workshop at “Titwood” in Glasgow, yesterday, Sunday the 25th of November. The workshop, which was attended by twelve people from seven different clubs, focused on best practice, investigated what constitutes child abuse and provided support for how coaches should respond to any concerns they may have.
Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, the First Aid course which was planned for this Sunday (the 25th of November) has had to be cancelled. However, it is hoped that this course will be re-arranged for a Sunday during January, 2019.
The planned Safeguarding and Protecting Children workshop on Sunday is, however, still running. This workshop takes place at “Titwood” (22 Beaton Road, Glasgow, G41 4LB), from 10am to 1pm. There are still a few places available – and anyone wishing to attend should contact Tim Hart (07825-172346) directly.
