The course has been produced in partnership with a 3rd party provider (Educare) and is bespoke to athletics, UKA governance and home country legislation. The course has been evolved and updated over recent months in order to provide the best possible learning experience for you as an official.

From the 1st July 2022, all Officials will be required to complete the safeguarding course at the point of re-licencing.
