Judges Competency Framework 

The Judges Competency Framework (JCF) is a system which has been developed, by the Kennel Club, for the education, approval and listing of every level of judge.


The Kennel Club have produced a booklet which  provides an overview of the Judges Competency Framework (JCF), and includes an explanation of the various levels, the key dates you need to be aware of, a table showing where you will slot into the framework during the transition period and what you will need to do to continue judging.





More information regarding judging, including the JCF, is available on the Kennel Club Website


As part of the JCF the Kennel Club recommended that each breed appoint a Breed Education Co-ordinator (BEC) to manage all points of breed specific education and act as a support for judges. This role is held on behalf of the breed clubs in order to support the breed clubs' obligations under the JCF for the education and training of judges.


The BEC for Border Terriers is Jayne Gillam  Email: jayne.gillam@btinternet.com
