    All Members must answer all the following questions. Any practitioner who is working or seeking employment MUST hold insurance (either as part of their employment contract with their employer OR independent insurance). Any practitioner who is working with vulnerable populations MUST hold a current disclosure and safeguarding training for the population they work with. You MUST upload evidence of your Disclosure, Safeguarding and Current Insurance to your account if you want to appear as searchable as available for work and/or offering supervision. You MUST upload your supporting evidence at the end of this registration form.

    Student members should answer No to Offering Supervision and Available for Work as Student members do not appear on the searchable register. These questions are therefore not relevant to Student members.

    Offering Supervision*
    I am available for work*
    I hold a current disclosure (i.e. DBS, Access NI, Disclosure Scotland) at the level appropriate to the population I work with. (Acquired within 3 years of my registration date with the UK-SBA)*
    ?Evidence is compulsory if you are available for work and/or offering supervision We understand there are difficulties for independent, self-employed practitioners obtaining an enhanced disclosure if they cannot access an employer to apply for one on their behalf. We are exploring alternative routes for our members with the authorities, as this is a clear anomaly in the system. But in the meantime, please submit a basic disclosure.
    My Insurance is current*
    ?Evidence is compulsory if you are available for work and/or offering supervision.
    I have completed Safeguarding Training at the level appropriate to the population I work with. (Acquired within 3 years of my registration date with the UK-SBA)*
