Child Wellbeing and Protection in Sport Renewal Award

Child Wellbeing and Protection in Sport (CWPS) is a training course developed in partnership with Children 1st that is suitable for people (+16 years old) who are involved in sports organisations that have under 18 participants.  It is targeted at all practitioners e.g. all coaches and volunteers working and volunteering directly with children and young people. It is recommended that all Coaches and Volunteers receive this training and renew their knowledge every 3 years.

What is the CWPS Renewal award?

Instead of just repeating CWPS training after 3 years (i.e completing module 1 & 2), sportscotland is now offering coaches and volunteers (the learner) the opportunity to advance their learning in CWPS, by giving access to renewal modules in various topics. This learning is valid for another 3 years, it is then that they have to complete the whole CWPS training again.

To achieve the Renewal award, learners must complete Module 1 of CWPS plus two other modules of their choice. This equates to approximately 3 hours of learning and should be completed within 3 months of their CWPS training expiring. Then in 3 years’ time after completing the renewal award, learners must then again complete both module 1 and 2 of a CWPS course.

The learner must have completed the full CWPS training 3 years previously, to be able to access the renewal modules.

How does the learner get access to the Renewal award?

The learner has to register with a course organiser (SGB or local authority) who will inform sportscotland Safeguarding admin team that the learners training has expired and need to complete the Renewal process. The Renewal award modules will then appear on the learners Brightspace homepage. They must complete Module 1 and then choose 2 more topics they want to gain more knowledge on. Unfortunately the learner is not able to choose more than 2 optional modules.

How does the learner prove they have achieved the Renewal award?

The learner will receive a “badge” after each eLearning module they complete and then receive a “Renewal Certificate” after they collect 3 badges. This award certificate will be available to download on the learners Brightspace account under "My Brightspace / Awards". This is proof their CWPS training is complete and up to date.
