Safeguarding Training - 30th January 2024

Online Safeguarding in Dance course. Special attention dedicated
to working with girls and young women. Provides CPD certificate.

AWA DANCE is offering an online session of Safeguarding in Dance training, held by expert dance educationalist Sam LeBihan.

The course will equip you with the knowledge and skills needed by dance teachers, studio owners, choreographers and project leaders to understand safeguarding within a dance setting including recognising and responding to issues, building a safe organisational culture and information sharing. This advice will be guided by relevant legislation and guidance. A section of the training will focus specifically on working with girls and women, understanding what risks they may face across a range of dance genres and settings, and discussing what safeguarding measures should be in place to protect them from harm within a fast-evolving dance scene.
