Any child older than 16 and finished full time education will no longer come under the child performance regulations and does not need a performance licence. Below school age children still need a licence to work!
Please download the documents as shown below and once compelted and signed they are to be uploaded into your profile in the 'Licensing' area. Please do not contact councils under any circumstances, only the clients and agency should do this unless otherwise instructed by us.
Haringey, Herefordshire & Birmingham councils offer open licences and if you fall under their area you need to apply for one now. Children with open licences are in high demand so you need to deal with this asap. Email email@example.com for application form and details.

TOOLS TO CONVERT TO PDF AND COMBINE INTO ONE DOCUMENT FOR UPLOAD
All pages must be uploaded as one document and in PDF format
a) Convert jpg to pdf at: https://www.convert-jpg-to-pdf.net/https://www.convert-jpg-to-pdf.net/ or convert word doc to pdf at: http://www.pdfonline.com/convert-pdf/
b) To merge multiple pdf pages to one pdf visit: https://www.pdfjoin.com/ - choose your pages one at a time using 'choose file', then click join below it and they will merge and save to your device. That one file you need to upload into slot 1 on your licence page.
5) Click the gold button to update all details and wait until the page is refreshed (will depend on your internet speed).
See below for an easy way to scan images of documents using a mobile device if required. These will save as jpg usually so use the tool above to then convert to PDF for upload.
If you have slow internet speed you may struggle with upload of docs to your profile if they are very large. See https://www.bizzykidz.com/helpful-information for instruction on how to downsize.
If you don't have a printer use www.dochub.com to sign documents online
