Nigeria Fencing is a registered National Governing Body with the Home Office. This allows Nigeria Fencing to endorse applications by Registered Clubs and Affiliated Associations to become Sponsors and to sponsor non-EU nationals to work as fencing coaches in the Africa.  

There are strict rules about who Nigerian Fencing will endorse as sponsors and coaches which have been approved by the Home Office.  Before making an application for an endorsement you should ensure that you have read the Endorsement Procedures and Requirements 

Once you have been registered as a sponsor, you will have to receive a separate governing body endorsement in respect of each migrant coach you wish to employ.   

Once coaches have been accepted under the points based system, it is possible to apply have their stay in the Africa extended by completing the Extension Application Form
