5 – Police Clearance/Criminal Record Check: As a part of YWAM Belfast you will be working with children/young people and/or vulnerable adults. YWAM Belfast is required by law to have the necessary police checks completed before you can be accepted onto the course. Please contact us for more details on how to complete this:



6 – Applicants from outside of the UK/Ireland need to have a visa to train with us. You will need to take the cost of this into consideration and allow plenty of time to complete the application and visa process. If you are not a British or Irish citizen, we recommend you apply 3 months before the beginning of the school.
