International Team Manager

If you would like to become an International Team Manager for BF, you will need additional training and qualifications over and above the basic TM pre-requisites as follows:

International TM (TM3) training  (mandatory)

International TMs will be given practical training, typically involving acting as a Deputy Team Manager on an international trip, usually a Junior World Cup.

BF has recently developed and launched the TM 3 module which covers international trips.


Hold a Safeguarding and Protecting Children Certificate (mandatory)

TMs must demonstrate a broad understanding of safeguarding by attending a Safeguarding and Protecting Children in Sport course.

BFs preference is for Team Managers to attend a Coaching UK Safeguarding and Protecting Children workshop. Once you have attended such a workshop, it is sufficient to attend the Coaching UK Safeguarding and Protecting Children 2: Reflecting on Practice every three years.


Be a UKAD accredited advisor (strongly recommended)

This course is free and takes approximately 2 hours to complete:


Read GBR Codes Of Conduct and Policies

Individuals wishing to become Registered International Team Manager will need to familiarise themselves with the additional Codes of Conduct and GBR Policies and Guidelines that relate to taking athletes to GBR internationals.
