Renewal

To remain as a recognised archery instructor by Archery GB, your Instructor Award certificate needs to be renewed every third year following your original course completion date. We will send you a reminder letter and guidelines on how to renew, with our Partner, Sport Structures in advance of your certificate expiry date. Please keep us updated of your address details if you move during the three-year renewal cycle.

You are no longer required to renew by keeping a log book of your activity, and can now renew online, by completing a learning module. It costs £40 to complete and payment can be made online via our Partner, Sport Structures.

Once you've successfully completed the learning module, we will post to you an up to date certificate within two months.


If you change address

Please remember to contact Archery GB with your new address and contact details, so that we can keep in contact with you and send you your renewal reminder and new certificate.

Leader Award

The Leader Award is no longer available and in 2014 was replaced by the Archery GB Instructor Award.

Renewal remains a requirement for all Leaders (and Instructors), and needs to be completed every 3 years. When Leaders and Instructors are due to renew, they will be written to and invited to do so by completing an online learning module, and they will subsequently be renewed as an 'Instructor'.

Common questions

1. What is the difference between the two courses?

Both courses train learners to deliver introductory archery sessions. However, the Archery GB Instructor Award is a shorter course (2.5 days), it has a modernised learning programme and resources, and only accredited tutors can deliver it.

2. Will the Leader Award be phased out?

Yes. From 31 December 2014 the GNAS Leader Award will no longer be available.

3. Do existing Leaders need to 'upgrade'?

No. The only impact on current Leaders will be to the way that they renew, which is now by a new online renewal process.

5. What happens to the renewal process?

Renewal remains a requirement for all Leaders and Instructors, and needs to be completed online every 3 years. The renewal process for existing Leaders has changed. When Leaders are due to renew, they will be written to and invited to do so by completing an online learning module, and they will subsequently be renewed as an 'Instructor'.

6. Are current Leader Award tutors automatically eligible to deliver the Instructor Award?

No. We have written to existing Leader tutors individually to explain that anyone wishing to become a tutor of the Instructor Award will need to apply separately.
