It’s been a busy few months for the ABCTT and we hope you’re enjoying the improvements and changes we’ve been making, the latest of which was the launch of our new website. To continue our improvements we’re simplifying the registration and renewal fees for centres and although these won’t come into effect until April 2018, we want to tell you about them now so you can budget for them.
Type of centre Annual fee
Level 1 £30 + VAT
Level 2 or 3 £50 + VAT
Level 4 or 5 (Awarding) £75 + VAT
Level 4 or 5 (Primary) £150 + VAT
These prices will be active for all registrations and renewals from 1st April 2018.

We also wanted to remind you that if your centre has been moderated in the past few years, you may still have an unused subsidy which we’re holding for you. We’ll be writing to the 66 centres where we know there is still a subsidy for NGB, Coach Awards, other training or consultancy, to remind you what was offered and is still available. These subsidies are our way of helping your staff to enhance their coaching qualifications and experience, to help your centre deliver NICAS and NIBAS even more effectively. We’ll hold this fund open until 31st March 2018.

Over the next few months we’ll be rolling out the new TahDah database, which will help you to keep track of candidates and their progress. This will dovetail behind the new website and, as it’s part of the TahDah suite of produces, offers a seamless transition for the records of candidates and coaches between NICAS, NIBAS and Mountain Training.

If you have any comments or queries about how we can help you to deliver the schemes, or about these changes, then please don't hesitate to get in touch with the team. This news was originally sent by email to all our providers. If you are a provider and did not receive it please check your inbox, spam and if not received, please do get in touch with ABCTT.

What is a Cookie

A cookie, also known as an HTTP cookie, web cookie, or browser cookie, is a piece of data stored by a website within a browser, and then subsequently sent back to the same website by the browser. Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember things that a browser had done there in the past, which can include having clicked particular buttons, logging in, or having read pages on that site months or years ago.

Why we use them

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, your computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make them better

You can manage these small files and learn more about them from the article, Internet Browser cookies- what they are and how to manage them
