BASES SEPAR/SE workshop – Professional Ethics for Sport and Exercise Scientists

April 27 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm UTC+0

BASES the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences
Location: Online
Price: Included in SEPAR application fee/ SE candidates £105
Booking Deadline:  Sunday 14 April 2024, Midnight
The aim of this workshop is to introduce and consolidate the principles of ethical good conduct for sport and exercise scientists. In doing so, through a variety of interactive learning experiences, it draws upon aspects of professional ethics as experienced by sport and exercise science practitioners. It also situates the BASES Code of Conduct in a set of applied (hypothetical) contexts. Underpinned implicitly by theoretical frameworks, it is intended for those sport and exercise scientists seeking accreditation through BASES.
Learning outcomes of the workshop:
• Understand the basis for ethical good conduct amongst sport and exercise professionals
• Recognise and apply the BASES Code of Conduct to inform good practice
• Appreciate some of the ethical sensitivities in professional practice around such themes as voluntary informed consent, risk and harm, confidentiality and anonymity, guilty knowledge and ‘whistle-blowing’
To limit the ‘online’ time and to allow for discussions in the workshops there will be pre-Workshop tasks and self directed resources. You should set aside around 2 or 3 hours of your time to ensure that they are completed before joining the online session. These will be sent a week prior to the workshop.
Booking Terms and Conditions
By registering for this workshop, you are agreeing for BASES to provide to the workshop presenter your email contact details. The workshop presenter is contracted by BASES to deliver the workshop.  Following the workshop, there is the opportunity for one-to-one email support and exchange of additional information with the workshop presenter(s) for any individual questions and follow-ups, which is why the presenter requires your email contact details.
Workshops require a minimum number of delegates to run. If a workshop is cancelled, this will be done no later than 7 days prior to the workshop date.
Please do not book more than one place on a workshop. Booking a place on multiple dates for the same workshop denies other candidates of a place and workshops have limited availability. If you are unsure what dates you have previously booked, please email education@bases.org.uk to find out.
For SE Candidates: Any cancellations received up to 7 days before the workshop are subject to a 50% cancellation charge. All workshop fees are forfeited thereafter, however substitutions can be made. Please note that if a delegate does not cancel and does not attend, then they are still responsible for payment.
For SEPAR Candidates: As per the Qualification Handbook, please note that only one free place per candidate is permitted on each workshop. If a candidate books and then cancels within 7 days of the workshop, or fails to attend the workshop without notifying the BASES Office, then the candidate will be liable to pay the delegate fee to attend that workshop when it is next scheduled. The fees are as follows:
BASES Safeguarding workshop £52.50
BASES Ethics in Professional Practice workshop £105
BASES Reflective Practice workshop £105
