Identification, Accreditation and Training

BTC Registered Instructors are required to gain NGB accreditation when they commence teaching Taekwondo.  This accreditation is mandatory and renewed every three years, comprising:

  • BTC Registered Instructors Course (BTC Policies and Procedures - Code of Conduct and Ethics, Equity, Communications and Social Media, Health and Safety, Insurance)
  • Enhanced DBS/PVG Scheme/AccessNI Certificate
  • BTC Basic Safeguarding Awareness Certificate
  • First Aid Qualification
  • Professional Indemnity Insurance
  • Current membership of BTC Member Organisation

Confirmation of a BTC Registered Instructors status is detailed in their personal profile - go to Members on the blue tab above and search on forename and/or surname.

Please note:  An instructor's profile may carry a notice 'Pending DBS/PVG' - this means that the individual has attended the Registered Instructor and Basic Safeguarding Awareness courses, has Professional Indemnity Insurance and the national governing body (BTC) is awaiting receipt of a copy of their DBS/PVG Scheme/AccessNI Certificate.  The instructor is monitored by their Member Organisation in the interim.  If the instructor does not yet have a First Aid qualification, risk assessments are undertaken and mitigations put in place, ie accompanied by someone with a current First Aid qualification or there are clear and accessible first aid arrangements in the training facility, until such time as the instructor gains a First Aid qualification.

Additional BTC courses available:

  • Welfare Officer Course (Advanced Standards in Safeguarding accredited by NSPCC and the Ann Craft Trust) is offered to club instructors (optional) and Club Welfare Officers (mandatory)
  • Equity in your Coaching
  • Involving Children and Young People
  • Association Safeguarding Officers


BTC Registered Instructors have the following identification.

We consider it a compliment if asked to produce this documentation before any contract is agreed for Hall Hire.
