Regional Bursary Scheme for Safeguarding Courses 2023
What is the Swim England South East Bursary Scheme for Safeguarding Courses?
In order to reduce some of the financial burden on clubs affiliated to the South East Region, the Region will help towards the cost of Safeguarding courses. All clubs affiliated to Swim England South East Region are able to apply for bursaries towards Safeguarding training.
The Region will support up to 50% of the cost of the course or £10 per person (whichever is the smaller amount). The following courses will qualify for funding:
- Swim England Safeguarding
- Safeguarding and Protecting Children UK Coaching
- UK Coaching Renewal: Safeguarding and Protecting Children in Sport (online refresher)
- SAFE (Safer Activities for Everyone) CIC standard safeguarding training Child
How are applications made?
Applications for bursaries should be made using the online application form by an Executive Officer (Chairman, Secretary or Treasurer) or Workforce Officer.
Applications for Safeguarding bursaries are to be made within 3 months of the training being completed. Claims can only be made for candidates whose Safeguarding attendance is recorded on their Swim England Membership Record. Once submitted you will receive an email acknowledging your application. Reimbursement for claims is by BACs to the club and will be processed on a quarterly basis (March, June, September and December).
