The Education and Athlete Support team manage and deliver an extensive education programme where our priority is to ‘keep clean athletes clean’ by reducing the incidence of inadvertent doping. 

Our Education Delivery Network (EDN) is a three-tier system, and incorporates National Trainers, Clean Sport Educators and Advisors. Our aim is to promote the values of clean sport and provide core anti-doping information. The EDN is passionate about ensuring these values are embedded across the sporting landscape.

You will be required to prepare education sessions with UKAD support, work with other National Trainers to co-deliver and ensure that all related paperwork (e.g. registers) are completed and sent back to UKAD in a timely manner.

In addition and dependent on experience, additional duties may be offered to support the delivery of our Prevention Strategy and associated programmes, such as providing compliance support to National Governing Body, delivery of Educator training and conducting in-field observations of educators and support to universities as part of our University Accreditation Scheme.
