Coach & Teach
Find a Coaching Course
The UKCC has been established for 10 years and following a review by Sports Coach UK of the National Occupational Standards, work is currently happening to develop content against the Standards, of which coaching qualifications are based on. Exciting changes are happening throughout the coaching industry to the way in which coach qualifications can be structured and awarded. This favours an increased modular approach, use of innovative technology, mixed delivery methods and Recognition of Prior Learning.
This work provides the opportunity for England Hockey to evolve and develop the Coaching Qualifications, ensuring they are fit for purpose, needs led and support the development of coaches. With the majority of coaching courses running between March and September it allows us to focus on developing the qualifications, supporting current coaches and getting through the backlog of Level 2 coach assessments from September 2014 to March 2015. To allow this to happen England Hockey will not be starting delivery of new Level 1 or Level 2 courses during this period.
Coaches will still be able to access quality coach development through the Coaching Club Programme, and we are planning for Coach Qualifications to be available Summer 2015 in time for the 2015-16 season.
