Overview for coaching course candidates

We’ll help you with the process of becoming a licensed coach once we have applied for your qualification certificate.  You don’t need to take any action about DBS checking or licensing until after you’ve completed your coaching qualification.

 

If you’re taking a Level 1 qualification through Angling Trust’s Coaching Centre, after you’ve qualified we’ll ask you to do the following:

► Confirm permission for Angling Trust to continue storing securely and ethically the personal data you’ve supplied in your course application;

► Undertake an appropriate Enhanced DBS check which Angling Trust will process for you and provide the relevant identity documentation;

► Provide a suitable photograph of yourself for your ID card (images of you are classed as part of your personal data).

 

If you’re taking a Level 2 qualification through Angling Trust’s Coaching Centre but you don’t hold a Level 1 coach licence, after you’ve qualified you’ll we’ll ask you to do the following:

► Confirm permission for Angling Trust to continue storing securely and ethically the personal data you’ve supplied in your course application;

► Undertake an appropriate Enhanced DBS check which Angling Trust will process for you and provide the relevant identity documentation;

► Provide a suitable photograph of yourself for your ID card (images of you are classed as art of your personal data).

 

If you’re taking a Level 2 qualification through Angling Trust’s Coaching Centre and you already hold a Level 1 coach licence, after you’ve qualified we’ll ask you to do the following:

► Confirm permission for Angling Trust to continue storing securely and ethically the personal data you’ve supplied;

► Confirm that you wish to convert your Level 1 licence to Level 2.

In most cases the DBS check relating to your Level 1 licence should be suitable for converting that licence to Level 2, but it may be necessary to update it (for example if it is nearing its 3-year review date).  We’ll also use the same photo of you, unless you prefer to supply a different one.

 

Important: if you already hold any category of DBS certificate, please DON’T send the document or any kind of copy of it to Angling Trust.  We would first need to find out whether AT would be entitled to ask for sight of the document, and if so we would advise how to arrange this.

 

There’ll be a booklet/PDF about the Licensed Coach Scheme with the Welcome Pack or emails that we send you just before the start of your coaching course.
