FA Qualified Welfare Officer course - will run on Sunday 10th June from 09:30 to Noon at Daventry FC

This workshop builds on the Safeguarding Children Workshop providing Welfare Officers with the specifics of their role; what will be required of them, where to go for professional support and guidance, and how to access more information.

 It provides the key tools to carry out the Welfare Officer role. 

Learners are required to have completed The FA’s Safeguarding Children Workshop before completing this workshop. It’s also mandatory for anyone taking on the role of Welfare Officer to have an accepted FA CRC – so learners are advised to have as a minimum submitted their CRC application prior to attending this training.
