British Orienteering are excited to support their commitment to Safeguarding further by launching their new 'Introduction to Safeguarding' eLearning course.

British Orienteering believes that it is essential to have at least a basic understanding of what behaviour is appropriate, how to identify a safeguarding concern and be confident about how to respond, as well as being clear about how to access support.

This course has been designed to be a great introduction for those delivering orienteering to others and wishing to learn about safeguarding, especially those who have contact with children or adults at risk.
