Renewing your licence

To remain as a recognised Archery GB instructor, your licence needs to be renewed every three years. Successfully completing this renewal demonstrates your underpinning knowledge to continue to safely instruct beginners.

We will post you a reminder letter including guidelines on how to renew in advance of your certificate expiry date. You can now renew online, by completing a learning module. This costs £40 and includes an update to date Instructor Award Learner Handbook. Once you've successfully completed the renewal learning module, we will post you an up to date certificate within 30 days.

Changing Address?

So that we can keep your licence information up to date, please remember to let us know if your contact details change.

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.
