National Policy for Young People
Irish Taekwon-Do Association (ITA) acknowledges the rights enshrined for Young People in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and those outlined and aspired to in the National Children’s Strategy: “Our Children – Their Lives”
Irish Taekwon-Do Association (ITA), as a representative of the International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF) in Ireland, acknowledges the special place children and young people have in the future development of Taekwon-Do in Ireland.
Irish Taekwon-Do Association is committed to providing a quality service and undertakes to make every effort to ensure that young people who choose to partake in Taekwon-Do can do so in a safe, secure and nurturing environment.
We are committed to an approach to Taekwon-Do practice which protects young people from harm and which recognises and accepts our responsibilities to develop an awareness of the issues which may cause such harm.
To do this, Irish Taekwon-Do Association requires all of its Instructors and members, to show understanding of, and respect for, the rights, safety and welfare of all whom we encounter in the practice and regulation of ITF Taekwon-Do, which we represent.
We require all members and instructors to conduct themselves in a fashion that reflects the ethos of the Irish Taekwon-Do Association and, in particular, the guidelines contained in the Irish Sports Council’s "Code of Ethics and Good Practice for Children’s Sport in Ireland" and the Department of Health & Children’s "Our Duty to Care".
Irish Taekwon-Do Association undertakes to safeguard Young People in our care by:
