Important Instructor Information

Saturday, May 29th, 2010

Please read this information, if you haven’t already heard about the ISA then you soon will. Please log on to the ISA website and familiarise yourself with the new scheme and what your responsibilities will be as a martial arts instructor. Below is a brief outline and what actions we will be taking in the future.

****************LATEST NEWS*******************************
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE NEW GOVERMENT HAVE POSTPONED THE ISA PROCESS
BUT CRB CHECKS ARE STILL REQUIRED AND CAN NOW ONLY BE DONE ON THE NEW FORMS.
PLEASE DO NOT SEND IN ANY OF THE OLD WHITE FORMS BUT CONTACT ME FOR MORE INFO.
**********************************************************

Background:
The new scheme is a response to the murders of Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman by Ian Huntley, which highlighted the failure in the current vetting system. The result is a new scheme under which everyone working with children or vulnerable adults should be checked and registered.

Basic outline:
How it affects martial arts instructors.

From October 2009
Increased safeguards will be introduced with a new checking system when processing CRB checks, there will be criminal penalties for barred individuals who seek or undertake work with vulnerable groups and for employers who knowingly take them on.

From July 2010
From July 2010 anyone can apply for an ISA registration, there will be a new CRB form which will combine a CRB check and ISA registration. When a person becomes ISA registered they will be continuously monitored and their status reassessed against any new information which may come to light. From this date new instructors and new instructors applying for insurance cover will have to be ISA registered before they will be accepted.

 The cost of a combined ISA/CRB check will be £64.00 ( the ISA part of the charge is a one off fee ) together with any administration costs this would therefore currently cost £79.00 through the BKA. Unpaid Volunteers will only have to pay the current administration fee of £15.00.

From November 2010
it will be a legal requirement for new employees ( ie instructors etc ) to be registered and for employers to check there registration status.

From 2011
All existing employees and volunteers with no CRB check must apply for ISA registration. Existing employees and volunteers with CRB checks will also need to apply for ISA registration, starting with those with the oldest CRB checks.

FROM July 2010 Checks can be applied for through the BKA or another body.
ISA website ; www.isa-gov.org.uk please note that in order to protect ourselves, we will insist on an ISA registration even if we are told that only adults are taught. I’m sure that as soon as possible local authorities renting space and sports centre etc will be requesting ISA registration. Queries please call 01484 843400

EKF/BKA Coaching Program

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

NEXT COURSE DATE : SATURDAY 20th NOVEMBER 2010

We now have the EKF/BKA coaching program up and running, the first date was Saturday 10th April. We’ve chosen a central venue in the midlands, which is a brilliant dojo run by BKA member Sam Stewart. We’ve decided to make the default coach level as ‘club coach’ lower levels are available but we felt that this is the one club instructors should go for. The next level up is ‘head coach’ this is for anyone who is a leader of a number of clubs. The cost of the coaching awards includes the fee to the EKF, the payment to the assessor and the cost of the venue. Many local authorities and Schools are now requesting coaching qualification, so it’s a good idea to start to think about attending our next course. One of the requirements for the award is a recent First aid certificate, so please think about attending a local first aid course in your area and getting the certificate, which will be required. Coaching awards can be applied for outside of the set-date courses, please contact us for more information.

An application form can be down loaded from the Instructor section and should be sent to Iain to confirm booking.
