Apply for a Chaperone licence

Find out information on how to apply for a chaperone licence. Children under 16 or of compulsory school age who are taking part in a performance must be supervised by a parent, carer or registered chaperone.

To apply for a chaperone licence you’ll need: 

  • to submit a completed application form
  • to provide one passport-sized photo of yourself
  • the names and contact details of two referees, one who knows you professionally
  • to complete mandatory online training such as with the NSPCC 
  • to attend an appointment where proof of identity will be confirmed
  • an enhanced Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) check. If you do not have a current DBS certificate, we'll tell you how to arrange this

Please allow at least 12 weeks before the first rehearsal or performance where you intend to be a chaperone 

Once approved:

  • you'll remain on the register for three years
  • you can chaperone anywhere in the UK during this time
  • at the end of the three years, you’ll need to re-register
Apply to become an approved Chaperone
