Scottish Rugby is pleased to offer various levels of child protection training delivered by NSPCC Scotland. The Foundation level is embedded into Rugby Right, which is our mandatory online training course for all youth coaches, referees and child protection officers. If you have yet to complete Rugby Right please take the time to do so. 

We are pleased to announce that our Intermediate and Refresher child protection training dates are now live. These courses are 3 hours long and aimed at Club Child Protection Officers.


-         Intermediate training for new CPOs and those who were unable to attend training last season

-         Refresher training for CPOs who attended the Intermediate course last season


Please note that training is mandatory for all CPOs, as per the club minimum operating standards, regardless of previous training or experience.
