ESFA AFFILIATION

IMPORTANT INFORMATION AND GUIDANCE FOR ASSOCIATION SECRETARIES AND CHILD WELFARE OFFICERS

ESFA Council have agreed that the deadline for registering representative team staff on the ESFA Portal/Database will be 30 SEPTEMBER 2017 – by this date ALL staff working with teams must be registered and approved. This means that staff must have:

  • An in-date FA DBS (within the past 3 years)
  • Attended FA Safeguarding (or, for practicing teachers, LEA) training within the last 3 years - where this is out-of-date, the training must be updated, using the online update facility, which is free
  • If you are a retired teacher and have been out of the profession for 3 years you are now expected to complete the FA Safeguarding training and then renew, online every 3 years http://www.thefa.com/get-involved/coach/online-safeguarding-recertification

The “Staff” and “Roles” section of the affiliation process will not be locked so Associations will be able to continue to add and update information on these two sections of the affiliation process, until 30 September.

Where this information in not complete at the 30 September deadline then non-compliant individual team staff will be SUSPENDED and/or the team(s) will be SUSPENDED from competition(s) and training until the suspension is lifted.

Please do not add names of Association Officers just to complete the process – the staff listed must be actively involved with the designated team(s).

Can we also remind you that an individual member of staff may only have designated overall control of a maximum of two (2) teams?
