Youth Update

Posted by on 01/10/2004

The BMC recently hosted a Child Protection Awareness Training sesssion, and an Off-site Safety Training course.

BMC Child Protection Policy As part of the implementation of our Child Protection Policy, the BMC office hosted a Child Protection Awareness Training session for Area Youth Co-ordinators, those involved with the junior competition climbing teams, and others responsible for implementing the Policy. We plan to hold similar sessions in other regions in the future. Youth Meets 2005 The BMC also hosted a one-day training course for those involved in the organisation of BMC outdoor events. For the last six years, the Fell and Rock Climbing Club has run a weekend meet in the Lake District specifically for young people who already have experience of climbing indoors and want to make the big step to outdoor climbing. The BMC wishes to encourage other climbing clubs to run similar meets in 2005. If you would like to know more about what is involved in staging a youth meet, there is an article in Summit 35, the Autumn 2004 issue, which will shortly be available to view on the BMC website, where you can also view the BMC Child Protection Policy guidelines. Alternatively, you can contact Nick Colton at the BMC on 0161 438 3305 or email nick@thebmc.co.uk We are in the process of producing guidelines on running events involving young people, and they will be available on the website in due course.
