Accredited VIP Worker

Basic Qualifications Required:    Enhanced SRO check (or equivalent) and V.I.P. Training Certificate

In addition to the basic qualifications, those wishing to become an Eighteen And Under Accredited V.I.P. Worker will be required to take part in a graded observed practice of their delivery methods and register with Eighteen And Under as Approved Providers. This registration must be renewed every year and an admin fee of £10 will be required before a certificate of accreditation is issued.

Observed practice of delivery can be achieved by delivering a V.I.P. session observed by an Eighteen And Under approved V.I.P. trainer. Delivery of this workshop would be graded by the V.I.P. trainer and a Pass Grade is necessary in order to obtain the Accredited V.I.P. Worker Qualification. 

Alternatively, a video/DVD of the worker’s delivery of a V.I.P. session can be submitted to Eighteen And Under to be graded by an approved V.I.P. Trainer. The video should be a minimum of three five minute clips taken at different times during a session. It is best to avoid the first 5 minutes and the last 5 minutes of the session. A Pass Grade is necessary in order to obtain the V.I.P. Worker Qualification.

Workers can reapply for approval and registration within a month of receiving a fail grade. An admin cost of £10 will be required each time a worker reapplies.

Approval and registration can be removed at any time if Eighteen And Under or V.I.P. is brought into disrepute by any action, inaction or any criminal act carried out or condoned by the approved person.
