Workshops
 
Child Protection
It is imperative that all clubs create the safest possible environment for all children and young people to participate in GAA Games and Activities. Central to this is the role of the Children’s Officer and Designated Officer. It is mandatory that every club has a Children’s Officer and that they are adequately trained to fulfil the requirements of their roles. Thiscourse provides that necessary training for both roles and is an excellent source of support and advice in a very sensitive area of club life.
 
Health and Wellbeing Officer Training

From 1st January all clubs are required by GAA rule to appoint a Health and Wellbeing Officer. This workshop advises on what the key roles and responsibilities are for this officer and how clubs can organise themselves to address the health needs of members. 
 
Club Online: Social Media and websites
Online communication platforms are extremely popular and a great way of promoting your club.  This workshop focuses on how best to integrate all your online media and how to maximise free application and facilities which come with social media.

Project Management & Facilities Development

This course reviews the operations and strategy that a Club must adopt when building new facilities. An overview of project management, tendering and procurement will be provided with a best practice case study. At present a significant amount of GAA capital projects enjoy partnership funding and as a result Clubs must follow strict guidelines on development. The workshop will also review GAA regulations and requirements for facilities.

Raising Scór and Culture within Your Club

This workshop will discuss ways in which all clubs, big and small, can increase and enhance their participation in Scór. As well as looking at the competitions, it will explore the feasibility of holding internal Scór events and giving special recognition to Scór participants within clubs
