I have completed all portions of this application truthfully and to the best of my knowledge, and if accepted by Youth With A Mission Limited, I will, under God, abide by the spirit, authority and schedule of the programme.

I understand that the Discipleship Training School consists of both the lecture phase and the field placement phase, and that by completing this application, I am making a commitment to both phases of the school.

I confirm that I have read the Financial Policy Sheet and understand that payment of my school fees must be made upon or before my arrival at the school (unless prior arrangements have been made). I therefore undertake to pay all personal expenses during my involvement with YWAM.

Youth With A Mission Limited reserves the right to terminate my involvement with them, if I am found to have misled YWAM in any way or if my conduct is prejudicial to the good running of the school or to the reputation of YWAM. I have read this form and accept the terms set out in it.

In accordance with the UK Data Protection Act (2018), the information provided on my application form will be held securely, confidentially and will not be kept for longer than is necessary to achieve the stated purposes of recruitment, selection, supplementary personal details and statistics, or that required by law or our insurance company.

I agree to comply with all aspects of national and local law


Though every effort is made to provide a safe environment, Youth With A Mission Limited, their agents, employees and volunteer assistants are insured against loss or injury caused by the negligence of Youth With A Mission Limited.

Accordingly in the absence of any negligence or other breach of duty by Youth With A Mission Limited, participation in a Youth With A Mission Limited organised programme, event or outreach is entirely at the participant's own risk. All participants are required to have adequate medical insurance for all phases of their involvement with Youth With A Mission Limited, including repatriation for serious illness and in the case of death.


· If needed, I consent to a criminal records check if appointed to the position for which I have applied. I am aware that details of pending prosecutions, previous convictions, cautions, or bindovers against me may be disclosed along with any other relevant information, which may be known to the police.

· If needed, I understand that, if I am a UK resident, a check will be made with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and that it is an offence for any person to commence Regulated Activity without first providing a valid DBS Disclosure. If I am an overseas resident, I understand that I will need to provide a police check from my home nation if the position I am appointed to requires it.

· I agree to inform the person within the YWAM base/team responsible for processing applications for Disclosure and Barring Service checks if I am convicted of an offence after I take up any post within YWAM England. I understand that failure to do so may lead to the immediate suspension of my work with children or vulnerable adults and/or the termination of my work/training association with YWAM.

· I agree to inform the person within YWAM responsible for processing applications for the Disclosure and Barring Service if I become the subject of a police and/or a social services/(Children’s Social care or Adult Social Services)/social work department investigation.

Have you experienced any of the following:
Yes No

Disclosing information in this section does not necessarily preclude you from acceptance. These questions are to help us assess whether YWAMs lifestyle is suitable for you at the present moment.


YWAM Harpenden requires all staff and trainees to have had/be up-to-date with the following vaccinations, and proof of vaccination for the lecture phase and in preparation for Outreach, and proof of vaccination must be provided before your medical can be completed and signed.

If you are unable to have these vaccinations because they are not available in your country, we will require you to have them within 2 weeks of arrival at your own expense. This form is not complete until this section on vaccinations has been answered. 

This is required because we often have pregnant women at YWAM Harpenden. If Rubella is contracted in the first four months of pregnancy it can seriously affect a baby's sight and hearing, as well as causing brain and heart defects, so the aim is to reduce the chance of a woman in early pregnancy being exposed to Rubella infection. This may be a combined MMR vaccination (Measles – Mumps - Rubella).

This is required because of the nature of work you may carry out as part of your work duties at YWAM Harpenden (such as gardening), as well as for your protection should you have an injury on outreach. This will probably be a combined DPT (Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus) vaccination, and boosters must be done every 10 years to remain effective. 

(including combined with Typhoid or Hepatitis B): This is required because Hepatitis A is a significant risk in many areas of the world.

This is required because Polio is still a significant risk in many areas of the world.


Please try and select people that have known you for at least two years and please don't choose close family members.
