Sports Club Training

Booking for for University of Cambridge Sports Club Training - Lent 2020.  All sessions to take place at the Sports Centre. 

Welfare Officer Training 

Mandatory for new Welfare Officers

The training, Essential Skills for Supporting Students, is delivered by the Students' Unions' Advice Service and provides attendees with tools to support their role as a Welfare Officer. 

As per the Welfare @ Sport guide, each club must have a dedicated, trained Welfare Officer who can ensure the wellbeing of club members, by confidently signposting students to a range of different support services where necessary, and playing a key role in ensuring all club activity is inclusive and appropriate. This is an important role in club committees, and training is provided free of charge. We want to ensure that Officers are equipped as well as possible to deal with any issues that may arise in their club. If the elected Welfare Officer for your club feels that they already have suitable training to carry out the role, please let us know - sometimes individuals have undertaken separate training, for example Mental Health First Aid, which suitably qualifies them to carry out the role.  

We have two options to choose from;

Wednesday 15th January 2020 - 2-5PM, Meeting Room, Sports Centre

Thursday 23rd January 2020 - 2-5PM, Meeting Room, Sports Centre

Please email if you require training but are unable to attend these sessions. If you have attended before then you do not need to re-attend, but if you'd like to re-attend and refresh your memory, please let us know as we will prioritise space for new attendees.
