Concern Debates: Volunteer Adjudicator Sign-Up Form

As of 2019, all Adjudicators must be Garda Vetted in line with Concern’s Safeguarding Children Guidelines before they enter a school premises. You must also accept the code of conduct and associated policies.

When agreeing to adjudicate an individual debate, Volunteer Adjudicator’s mobile numbers will be shared with the teacher from the participating school and other participating Volunteer Adjudicators. This is to ensure the event runs smoothly, that all parties are aware of the location and time of the debate, to communicate changes to timetables, changes to the venue or any issues which may arise. Volunteer Adjudicators commit to maintaining the strictest confidentiality with any personal data which may be shared with them during the debates and to delete any such information at the end of the debate unless they have prior consent from an individual to keep that information.

Concern will retain details of Volunteer Adjudicators for one year. Concern will contact Volunteer Adjudicators eleven months after initial registration in order to see if Volunteers Adjudicators are willing to participate again in the Concern Debates Programme. If Volunteer Adjudicators wish to not participate, Concern will remove Volunteer Adjudicator’s details from Concern’s CRM database.

Concern Worldwide is committed to the protection of children and young people with whom we work and to upholding good practice across the organisation. This Code of Conduct for Debates Adjudicators arises out of our adherence to the Children First Act 2015 and the Children First National Guidance 2017. By signing this, you agree to adhere to these codes of practice.
