Face-to-face NFAS Coach Training Course

There is a face to face Coach Training course proposed on the 15th and 16th of October, at The Scout Hut in Bromsgrove.

You may need to arrange accommodation for the weekend, and you will need to find a way to feed yourself during the weekend. These things are not provided by the NFAS and are at your own expense. You will not need to bring any equipment with you, other than a pen to write with.

The cost of the Course is still £90 including DBS checks, OCN Registration, and later, access to the NSPCC's Online Child Protection in Sports Course.

Training will start early on the Saturday with Slides and chat. Sunday will also start early and includes both Presentations and The Practical. Following the weekend you will have 6 weeks to produce a written assignment, which is a blue-print for your course.
The Assignment will test that you have understood the presentations and can use the knowledge gained.

There will be tea, coffee and biscuits available for comfort breaks during the day.

If you would like to attend this course please email John Pemberton, NFAS Coach Trainer. Places are allocated on a first-to-reply first-to-be-allocate-a-place basis.

Further Online courses will be available all around the country on an on-going basis. If you aren't sure that this time and place are right for you, you are advised to wait for a suitable Course.

Phishing/Scam email regarding VIP membership

Further to the phishing/scam emails being received by members, we don't believe the membership database has been breached, as a number of recipient email addresses are not stored in the membership database. As far as we can tell, it is only email addresses that have been accessed and the breach could have come from a number of sources, and is currently impossible to track down. The NFAS will never ask for money through links in emails. Importantly no payment/bank details are at risk as these are processed by WorldPay - the NFAS has never stored or processed online payments. Just like phishing/scam emails from banks, or links in 'Messenger' or 'WhatsApp', please do not click on anything and ignore and delete.
