More than 400 people completed England Boxing’s safeguarding course in the month of April.

Courses resumed on Monday 12th April when the UK government moved to Step 2 of its easing of Covid-19 lockdown restrictions.

They have taken place all over the country from Washington, near Newcastle, in the north to Newquay in the south, with 21 courses staged during that period.

All have featured extra precautionary measures that have been put in place to guard against the ongoing threat of Covid-19 transmission.

Attendees have been required to confirm by email that neither they, nor anyone in their household, has displayed Covid-19 symptoms the day before a course is due to start.

Once at the venue, contact details have been collected and retained for a limited period for the purposes of Test and Trace of necessary, while social distancing and hygiene protocols have been in operation.

There are a further 51 courses running throughout all regions over the coming months, with more to be added in due course.
