What is the Instructor Ready mark?
The Instructor Ready mark is a self-assessment scheme that has been designed by EMD UK, the Sport England national governing body for group exercise, to provide a level of confidence for all group exercise instructors returning to the industry. It also provides reassurance to venues and attendees that their class instructor has clear processes in place that follow industry guidance.
How long does the online assessment take to complete?
The online assessment is only 10 questions long and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.
What do you get to show you have completed the self-assessment?
Once you have completed the self-assessment, you will receive an Instructor Ready certificate.
I run classes in multiple venues – do I need to do an application for each one?
No, but you must provide separate risk assessments to each venue and provide evidence stated in the self-declaration to each venue if asked.
I teach in Scotland, England, and Wales – is it the same process for each?
Currently, this scheme is only for instructors operating classes in England.
