Who is this course for?
This is a bespoke course designed for your entire event staff to participate in together as a staff training day.
The course not only supports your staff to identify and report any safeguarding concerns they may have at a competition, but also assists you as an EP owner in reinforcing your staff protocols, code of conduct and the expected behaviours that will make your event not only safe but improve customer service.
