Applications welcome for second cohort of Women’s Officials Development Programme

July 11, 2023 | by Chris Boyd


England Boxing is welcoming applications for the second cohort of the Women’s Officials Development Programme, which will support female officials in their development and progressions within their respective regions.

The programme will be delivered over a 12-month period to a group of ten officials.

Group and one-to-one sessions will be held either virtually or face-to-face throughout the project.

An Individual Development Plan will form the conversations and directions of what each official requires as their key areas for development.

A mentor of a specialised area, such as a judge, referee or supervisor, will be assigned to offer support and guidance along the way for each of the officials who are enrolled on the programme.

Practical Elements

Practical elements will be organised and delivered in partnership with England Boxing regional associations, in addition to invitations to shadow and/or participate in England Boxing’s Women’s Winter Box Cup.

There will be an individual review on completion to explore further areas for each official to take ownership and continue their development beyond the programme.

How to apply

You can apply for a place with a short video stating:

  • Name, region and registered club
  • Current England Boxing Officials’ Grade (Please note the minimum requirement is a Grace C Judge.)
  • Which area of officiating you would like to develop and why
  • Why you want to be involved in the programme.

Applications will close at midnight on Sunday 6th August 2023.
