Safeguarding Updates

UKA have announced changes regarding the renewal of Coach Licences, primarily in relation to Safeguarding.

When any coach renews their coaching licence, they will now be required to complete the UKA Safeguarding course and this will be the only Safeguarding course they will accept.

The course is a self-paced online course and costs £10, renewable each time you renew your Licence.

Please note, this change does not come into effect until your existing licence is up for renewal. No action is required until this point.

Unofficially, this will also become a condition for Officials looking to renew their licence from April, although this is yet to be confirmed.
