ASA/NSPCC Time to Listen
The ASA has linked up with the NSPCC and is accredited to deliver the ‘Time to Listen’ module that is aimed at Club Welfare Officers (CWOs).
While it is appreciated that some CWOs will be trained and experienced in child protection issues, the Time to Listen programme provides the opportunity to consider the role and responsibilities of CWOs and the action taken should any incident occur.
The course, usually delivered by county or regional associations, aims to support the Welfare Officer to:
- Acquire core knowledge and develop essential skills to fulfil their role and responsibilities.
- Adopt a child-focused approach to safeguarding.
- Share good practice and learn from others in the same role.
The ASA recommend that all CWO’s attend the training as it will support them to carry out their role effectively and safely.
All participants need to have attended a Safeguarding and Protecting Children workshop prior to attending Time to Listen - to find your nearest Safeguarding and Protecting Children workshop please see the IoS Website.
Our best practise guidelines are that all safeguarding training should be updated every 3years to ensure you are kept up to date with any changes in practises, procedures or legislation. This will therefore include both the Safeguarding Protecting Children workshop and Time to Listen.

Becoming a Time to Listen Presenter
We are always looking for new presenters to deliver our Time to Listen workshops.
We will then assess if you are suitable and if so make you aware of when the next training session is for new presenters.
