Learner Guidance

What is the CWPS Renewal award?

Is your CWPS certificate about to expire? If yes, then you are eligible for Renewal award. If no, then wait until it is about to expire and then start the renewal process. You can check your certificate for the expiry date or check with your SGB.

sportscotland is offering coaches and volunteers (the learner) the opportunity to advance their learning in CWPS, by giving access to renewal modules in various topics. Instead of just repeating CWPS training after 3 years (i.e completing module 1 & 2), the learner can renew their certificate for another 3 years by completing a series of eLearning. This learning is then valid for another 3 years and it is only then that the learner must complete the whole CWPS training again.

To achieve the Renewal award, learners must complete Module 1 of CWPS plus two other modules of their choice. This equates to approximately 3 hours of learning and should be completed within 3 months of their CWPS training expiring. Then in 3 years’ time after completing the renewal award, learners must then again complete both module 1 and 2 of a CWPS course.

The topics covered in the renewal award are:

  • Safeguarding in a digital world
  • Common issues in safeguarding (scenario learning)
  • Introduction to inclusive practice
  • Child mental health and wellbeing
