Independent Safeguard Authority for Qualified Infant and Baby Massage Instructor????
Do any other baby massage instructors have any information about the I.S.A?
I recently qualified and my instructor said i now need to contact this government branch and pay them around £20 to be allowed to work with babies and infants.
There isn't a dedicated form to fill in online and not very much information on their website about how much it costs, what it entails, etc etc (http://www.isa-gov.org.uk/)
I know it is a relatively new thing - Only since Feb of this year and i think it is along the same sort of lines as a CRB check?
If anyone else has done this, knows the easiest way to go about it, how much it costs, how they might keep my information etc etc i would be very grateful!
Thanks in advance

|The government has had to go back to the drawing board with Vetting & Barring, as it was unworkable. I don't think you will need this anyway as you are not working with the children away from their parents. If you work in a school/youth group/care home etc where you are in contact with kids when parents are not present, then you do need to be CRB-checked, but the organisation you work for does this on your behalf. Double check with the CAB or similar to make sure. Been lots in the press lately about the govt. u-turn if you google 'vetting & barring".

|ISA is Independent Safeguarding Authority. Typical that their website isn't clear!|
