Sport & Leisure Disciplinary Panel Training

Does your organisation need to establish and run disciplinary hearings for athletes, coaches or staff? Do you need to sit on a panel to hear a case? Do you want to improve the hearing process and ensure that your decisions are fair? If the answer is yes then this course if for you.

During the course we will look at the various aspects of establishing and running a disciplinary panel as well as what is involved in being a panel member. You will learn how to assess different types of evidence, how to effectively ask questions of witnesses and how to make and issue your decisions.

We also look at how the hearing process can be administered to ensure that procedures are complied with, and who should sit on a panel and how a panel is formed.

The course will be invaluable to senior managers and board members of an organisation, HR professionals who support sport and leisure organisations, and potential panel members either experienced or just starting out.

Knowledge is gained though a mixture of presentation, discussion, and practical exercises. The course will be delivered live online giving maximum flexibility for delegates to attend.

The Sport & Leisure Disciplinary Panel training is a two part short course designed to equip the delegate to understand how sport & leisure disciplinary panels are formed and run.
