If you would like to become an International Team Manager for BF, you will need additional training and qualifications over and above the Domestic Team Manager training:

International TM 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 International 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.

You can find a list of approved courses here, and courses offered by British Fencing on our Upcoming Courses.

Have a UKAD certificate (mandatory)

There are two courses you can take, the Clean Sport Essentials, is an in-depth course for Athlete Lifestyle Advisors and Support Personnel the course consists of six modules followed by an assessment and there is the Coach Clean course which is shorter and aimed more at coaches but will still give you an understanding of anti-doping with regards to those who support athletes. Both courses are free and further details can be found at the UKAD Clean Sport Hub.
