DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service)
All Coaches, Assistant Coaches and Sign Off Authorities must hold an Enhanced DBS disclosure issued within the last three years. If applicants do not hold a current DBS disclosure, the NFAS will make application for the appropriate forms to be forwarded to them to apply for a DBS disclosure.
Should a disclosure be returned with content (Criminal Record), the applicant will be requested to forward a copy to the DBS Administrator. Depending on the severity of the offence a decision will be made on whether the applicant is deemed suitable to take up the post. Content of a serious nature may be referred to the NFAS committee for adjudication.
