1. RECRUITMENT AND TRAINING

The BOVEY CASTLE GC will endeavour to ensure that all volunteers and staff working with

children and young people are appropriate and suitable to do so, and that they have all the

information they require to undertake their job effectively and appropriately.

Each role which involves an element of responsibility with regard to children, particularly

those involving the regular supervision of children, whether voluntary or paid, should be assessed by

the recruiting body to establish which qualifications, checks and other

requirements are necessary. These will include the following:

• An application form (Appendix 1)

• A self-disclosure form (Appendix 2)

• References from 2 people (Appendix 3)

• A signed Code of Conduct (Appendix 4)

• A Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check on people involved in 'regulated activity'

with children (Guidance on Regulated Activity & DBS- Appendix 16)

Details of the requirements and the qualifications and checks of individuals will be recorded

by the Club Welfare Officer/Secretary/Manager who will also hold copies of the necessary

Safeguarding and Protecting Children (SPC) certificates. The nominated person will possess

all relevant and appropriate contact details of all staff / volunteers and other relevant bodies.

All staff, volunteers & coaches will be offered access to appropriate child protection

training. The BOVEY CASTLE GC recommends attendance at the UK Coaching

Safeguarding and Protecting Children (SPC) workshop and will ensure that all volunteers

and staff who have significant contact with children attend. An online UK Coaching

refresher course should be completed and repeated every three years for those involved in

"Regulated Activity."

All staff, volunteers & coaches working with children and young people will be asked to read

and become familiar with the BOVEY CASTLE GC Safeguarding Policy and Procedures.

All staff, volunteers & coaches involved with children and young people will be asked to read

the BOVEY CASTLE GC Code of Conduct relevant to their role, and sign to indicate their

understanding and agreement to act in accordance with the code. The code is linked to the

BOVEY CASTLE GC's Disciplinary Procedures. (Codes of Conduct-Appendix 4,5,6)

The BOVEY CASTLE GC are committed to the fact that every child and participant in golf

should be afforded the right to thrive through being involved in sporting activity for life, in an

enjoyable, safe environment, and be protected from harm. The BOVEY CASTLE GC

acknowledge the additional vulnerability of some groups of children (e.g. disabled, looked

after children, those with communication differences). The BOVEY CASTLE GC will ensure

that the environment is appropriate for the child, and tailored to their needs so that they

have a positive experience of their sport without risk of harm.
