Brass Bands England announce that BandSafe is on the move.
Dear Bandsafe User,
Thank you for using BandSafe we hope you have found the tool useful. We want to let you know that BandSafe is moving to a new home on www.bbe.org.uk. But don’t worry, you will still be able to use the tool as you have been until now. It will still be free to everyone but now you will only need one account with BBE.
If you do not already have an account on bbe.org.uk, you will need to create one here.
We have made a video guide to the website on this link and theres a video for you to watch how to log on at this link
You can get to the new tool on this link.
The reason we are making this change is that now, if you are a member of BBE and also complete our BandSafe training, you will be able to use the new BBE BOPA issued by the Secretary of State for Education instead of applying for Child Performance Licences.
To book onto the BandSafe training to use the BOPA we are taking this training around the country in July and August please visit www.bbe.org.uk/events to book onto a course near you.
One condition of using this is that bands must have completed the BandSafe toolkit within the last 18 months. In order to automate and monitor this, we are moving the toolkit to www.bbe.org.uk so that once you have updated your policy the system will record your band as complete for the next 18 months.
Unfortunately we are not able to transfer your current answers to the new system so you will need to go through the questionnaire to let the system know you have an up to date policy. If you have recently updated your policy you will have an up-to-date policy and completing the self-assessment will be a simple process, but if not it might be a good time to look at refreshing your policy now.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact BBE on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kind regards from all the team at BBE
