DBS Online Update Service Notification from British Taekwondo (England & Wales Only)

All British Taekwondo Instructors that are signed up to the DBS Online Update Service and pay the £13 per year fee to Disclosure and Barring Services (DBS), are not required to apply or pay for DBS checks via your Hub profile. The DBS Online Update Service checks are carried out separate from The Hub and cost £25 via Worldpay to British Taekwondo for administration (not the £65 you will be charged if you apply through The Hub).

If your DBS on your Hub profile is expired or expires within one month, please contact James Docherty at: james.docherty@britishtaekwondo.org with the following information:

  • Your full name
  • Your Disclosure Certificate Number (this usually starts with 001)
  • Your surname as it appears on your Disclosure Certificate
  • Your Date of Birth

If you feel you already have current Disclosure clearance (within last 3 years) but this is not showing on your Hub profile, please contact James Docherty at james.docherty@britishtaekwondo.org to have this checked and updated for you immediately.

If your DBS Online Update Service subscription has lapsed or you are not signed up to this service through DBS, you will be required to apply and pay for your DBS checks through your Hub profile by following these steps:

Login to your Hub profile, click on ‘Applications’ on the black menu bar on the left of the screen (in the small menu bar at the top if using a Mac or iPhone/Pad) then click on ‘New Applications’ which will take you to the screen where you select Criminal Records Checks/DBS (£65) then click ‘Submit’ which will take you to the payment screen and will offer you to pay with either a Credit or Debit card via Worldpay or via Paypal.

Once the payment has gone through, British Taekwondo will receive the notification and will create you an online DBS application using your name and email address from your Hub profile.

Following the creation of your online DBS application, you will receive an email with an activation link to login and complete your online DBS application.

Once you have completed your online application form, you will be able to access a list of participating post offices that can verify your relevant ID documents.

Once you have completed this part of the process, your application is pending and should be completed within 2-8 weeks.

Please note: Instructors are not permitted nor insured to instruct until they have received disclosure check clearance with British Taekwondo or have written permission from British Taekwondo whilst they have a valid disclosure check application in progress.
