Introduction to Criminal Records Checks
Total Taekwondo is committed to providing the safest possible environment for the welfare of Children and Adults at Risk and has a duty to safeguard and protect all participants from harm.
Criminal Record Checks help us to provide that protection by allowing us to check that an individual has not been barred from working with children and/or adults.
Who needs a Criminal Record Check?
Total Taekwondo has determined the following clearance requirements:
Coach (paid & Volunteer) - Enhanced Check with Barred List Check
Safe guarding Officer - Enhanced Check with Barred List Check
Club Administrator - Basic Check
If not within one of the roles above - Basic Check
Any other roles and their requirements can be discussed with the Safeguarding officer via email@example.com
