FIFA Guardians Programme

;

Welcome to the FIFA Guardians website. Please watch the video below to hear from FIFA President Gianni Infantino on why safeguarding in football is so important.

As a cornerstone of our commitment to safeguarding and child protection, FIFA launched the FIFA Guardians programme and toolkit for member associations in July 2019. The toolkit is a practical handbook for FIFA’s 211 member associations on the steps needed to develop and implement policies and procedures to prevent and address harm and ensure the well-being of everyone in football, especially children. You can find more information about the FIFA Guardians toolkit below.

As part of our commitment to raise safeguarding standards in football, FIFA launched the FIFA Guardians Safeguarding in Sport Diploma.

Developed by FIFA and the Open University (OU), the FIFA Guardians Safeguarding in Sport Diploma is a complete open learning experience available in English, French and Spanish. This major new global education programme is designed to strengthen and professionalise safeguarding standards across football. The programme will consist of five online courses primarily aimed at training and supporting safeguarding officers from FIFA’s 211 member associations (“FIFA learners”).

FIFA learners will have access to dedicated webinars, moderated forums, interactive workshops and assessments as part of the ongoing 24 months curriculum. FIFA learners will be required to complete the full programme to achieve the FIFA Guardians Safeguarding in Sport Diploma.

The five online courses will also be open and freely accessible to other learners, from any sport or sector, who wants to learn more about safeguarding in sport. If they successfully complete all five courses online, they will be awarded the FIFA Guardians Safeguarding in Sports Award by the Open University.
