Welfare Officer Register

The Club Welfare Officer register below will be updated regularly. If we are missing up to date information about the welfare courses you have attended or your British Fencing membership has expired – please inform development@britishfencing.com.

You can now upload your course certificates into your British Fencing membership account via the Sport80 platform. Watch this short video with instructions on how to upload certificates on Sport80.

Please note that in order to incorporate the different welfare certifications used by all the Home Countries  BF have updated the classification to generic titles, as demonstrated below.

These can be uploaded via the “Safeguarding Qualification”  option;

  • En Garde Ready = Club Welfare 1
  • Time to Listen & Child Wellbeing and Protection Officer (CWPO) Training = Club Welfare 2
  • Safeguarding and Protecting Children In Sport & Child Wellbeing and Protection in Sport (CWPS) = Safeguarding & Protecting Children in Sport

Please remember it is mandatory to be a member of British Fencing (supporter level is sufficient) to act in the role of  Club Welfare Register – if you are not a member click here.

Once you have successfully uploaded your certificate(s) please email development@britishfencing.com and ask for the relevant workforce registers to be updated.



If your name is in black letters, that means you are fully compliant.

If your name is in red letters, either at least one of your minimum requirements is not up-to-date, or we don’t have a copy of at least one of your certificates. Thus, you are not compliant in the Welfare Officer Register.
