Course Designers Portfolio - Officials Logbook

The Officials Logbook has been  created to help aid, track and monitor development through the Officiating Levels.  The Logbook captures some of the key Criteria and Competencies of each Level and is used as a guide for recommendation. Officials who are upgrading will be expected to complete this as part of their upgrade. Course Designers are encouraged to cerate a portfolio of works including master plans with heights and distances. So to help show depth of knowledge and experience. Portfolio Forms Can be downloaded here.  (OF12)

Regional Official Mentors

The Regional Official Mentors were introduced to help Officials on a more local basis with any questions, queries or problems that may arise.  Each of the Regional Official Mentors were appointed following an application process, and were appointed as proactive and forward thinking individuals who displayed experience in developing and progressing individuals.  The Regional Official Mentors will also act as a link between Regional Officials and British Showjumping HQ.  Details of the Regional Official Mentors can be found by clicking here.
