#UKCoachingWeek: Free Duty to Care Toolkit and Digital Badge

During #UKCoachingWeek, UK Coaching are giving the opportunity for coaches to demonstrate their dedication and thorough knowledge of the principles of duty to care.

The toolkit equips coaches with the knowledge and skills to provide great coaching experiences to others, as well as support coaches to begin to better look after themselves.

The Duty to Care Toolkit is a series of Knowledge Checks and coach learning resources set across the five distinct pillars that represent the Duty to Care ethos: Safeguarding, Inclusion, Diversity, Well-being and Mental Health.

Simply complete the 5 FREE Knowledge Checks attached to each pillar of the #GreatCoaching Duty to Care Toolkit to earn UK Coaching's nationally recognised ‘Digital Badge’

Upon successfully completing the Knowledge Checks you will be prompted to share the badge and your achievement on your social media channels.

There are workshops, online courses and essential resources covering the five pillars of Duty to Care. 

Do you feel ready to put your knowledge to the test? If so, enrol now for free on all five Knowledge Checks below, as set out below. 

Five Pillars of Duty to Care: 

  • Safeguarding
    Safeguarding & Protecting People (children and adults, grassroots to high performers) from harmful practice in sport and physical activity.  
    Find out more and enrol here.
  • Diversity
    Diversity is who you attract to your session. Organisations, clubs and coaches have an obligation to provide equality of opportunity for those taking part. This precludes discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, age, ability or sexual orientation. 
    Find out more and enrol here.
  • Inclusion
    Inclusion is how you tailor delivery to different audiences and how you treat people to keep them involved.

  • Mental Health
    Just like physical health, we all have mental health and, just as our bodies can become unwell, so can our minds.
    Find out more and enrol here.
  • Well-being
    A coach can positively influence the way people think, feel and behave and support them to build their resilience, self-esteem and confidence, which are essential to maintaining and improving psychological and emotional well-being.
