Significant Changes in England & Wales

From September 2016 criminal record checks in England & Wales will be done online.  Anyone requiring a criminal records check (i.e. Taekwondo Board members, coaches, drivers, health care professionals, instructors, referees, senior managers, volunteers and webmasters who monitor forums used by children) will need to apply via the Mansfield Office using FORM 12.  

Criminal Record Check Application Form – Form 12

Upon receipt of your completed FORM 12 & payment; you will be sent a web link through to our new online application portal.  

Complete the online application via the web link, print off your application and take it to your post office with your identification documents. Full instruction are included below:

When the DBS has processed your application you will receive a green-coloured Disclosure Certificate; we will contact you if you need to send a copy of the Disclosure Certificate to the office.  

When we have verified your Disclosure Certificate and updated your personal membership record we will issue a Registered Instructor Certificate.   If you are a club volunteer, you may not require a Registered Instructor Certificate, but we still need to update your membership record.

If you have any questions, please contact Liz Behnke, National Lead Safeguarding Officer on 07717 740125.
