Renew or apply for a chaperone licence

1. Complete your online training

Please note: The process can take from  8 to 12 weeks especially during our busy periods so please ensure you apply in time.   

Renewal and Application are the same.

Complete the process below to apply or renew your licence at least 3 months before it expires. There is a charge to renew:

  • £35 for a volunteer chaperone
  • £73 for a professional chaperone

(A volunteer provides their service for free (apart from expenses) so their Enhanced DBS check is free of charge. The Professional receives payment for their service and therefore the Enhanced DBS will cost £38.00.

It is illegal to use your free of charge DBS certificate to earn any form of income.)
