Important information regarding Safeguarding courses

Due to current restrictions in force in Scotland, our normal face to face safeguarding courses are unable to proceed until further notice. During this time, many safeguarding awards will expire, or in some cases may have already expired. However, the safeguarding team at Scottish Gymnastics have been working on an interim solution which would allow safeguarding at all levels to continue.

The information detailed below explains the interim measures being put in place for each level of safeguarding:

SG3
For those individuals whose SG3 is due to expire in between 1 September and 31st December 2020 who require SG4, a waiver will be added to everyone’s gymNET record. This interim measure will be kept under review following Scottish Governments advice and clubs will be kept up to date. 
 
SG 2
For those individuals whose SG2 is due to expire in between 1st June and 31st December 2020, who require SG3, the online section of SG3 should still be completed as normal. A single online course will be set up with a deadline date of 18th December 2020 for completion.  For those who complete the online section, a waiver will be added to their gymNET record.  The face to face section of SG3 courses will be set up as soon as possible when the easing of current restrictions allows courses to be delivered safely, and clubs will be kept up to date. 
 
SG&P
For those individuals whose SG&P expires in between 1st March and 31st December 2020, who require SG2, we have developed an online SG2 CPD. This interim measure includes parts of the current face to face SG2 course and provides important information on safeguarding and continued learning for coaches, safeguarding officers and officials. It will be valid for a maximum period of 12 months. Individuals will be expected to attend the full face to face SG2 course, when the easing of current restrictions allows the courses to be delivered safely, and clubs will be kept up to date. 

There will be no charge for this online SG2 CPD course.

For those individuals who require SG&P i.e. those who were booked on to a Level 1 course which has been postponed, and for those who are planning to attend a Level 1 in 2020, we have developed an online SG&P CPD. This interim measure includes parts of the current face to face SG&P course and provides important information on safeguarding for coaches.  

It will be valid for a maximum period of 12 months. Individuals will be expected to attend the full face-to-face SG&P course, when the easing of current restrictions allows the courses to be delivered safely, and clubs will be kept up to date. 

There will be no charge for this online SG&P CPD course.

Hope you are keeping safe.
