Scottish Rugby is pleased to offer three levels of child protection training for Child Protection Officers; Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced (coming soon). The Foundation level is embedded into Rugby Right, which is our mandatory online training course for all youth coaches, referees and child protection officers. If you have yet to complete Rugby Right please take the time to do so. 

The Intermediate level registration is now live.This will be a three hour workshop facilitated by NSPCC Scotland and all Club Child Protection Officers are required to attend. We understand as volunteers you will have other important commitments, therefore we are running 12 courses throughout Scotland on different dates so we can accommodate as many people as possible.
