Training & Development – Preferred Options Papers

Andy McMillan, Chairman of Training & Development, introduced the thinking behind the Society’s “Preferred Options” (PO) papers at the pre-season meetings in August 2020.

The idea of the papers is to help referees and assessors work towards taking a more consistent approach and to continually improve the refereeing of individual officials of all levels and in the Society as a whole.

The full set of fourteen papers is listed below (click on the topic to download):

In addition, new self-evaluation checklists for referees and assessors are also available.

If you have any questions on the matters covered by the papers or you have a suggestion for a paper, please do contact your grade mentor and/or Andy.
