Talent Coaches Breakfast Clubs

sports coach UK are pleased to provide a new programme of Talent Coaches Breakfast Clubs, providing Talent Coaches throughout the UK with further access to exciting and relevant topics of discussion, expert speakers and the opportunity to share thoughts, challenges and solutions with other coaches working in the England Talent Pathway.

What are the Talent Coaches Breakfast Clubs?

A series of targeted, regional, Talent Coach development opportunities, supporting coaches and Governing Bodies in creating a more knowledgeable and valued coaching workforce.

What are the objectives of a Talent Coaches Breakfast Club?

  • To provide practical coach development for coaches with an interest in Talent Development, working with, or having a desire to work with emerging athletes within the England Talent Pathway
  • To introduce coaches to critical themes in the Talent domain
  • To encourage the development of a cross-sport Community of Practice for coaches, combining the delivery of targeted information, informed by current research, with facilitated discussion between coaches to provide further context and the conditions for further learning and development
  • To provide a service to Governing Bodies by providing training and development for coaches in impactful subject areas that sit outside of common development and qualification offers
  • To support Governing Bodies and National Organisations in identifying current and future coaching talent.

Who's the target audience?

Talent Coaches Breakfast Clubs are of particular interest to high-performing coaches with an interest in Talent Development, working with, or having a desire to work with emerging athletes within the England Talent Pathway. These coaches are expected to be working within Clubs, Regional and Age-group athletes and teams, depending on the structure of their sport.

Information and information sharing is pitched at coaches with at least a UKCC Level 3 qualification or equivalent, or those working towards this with significant experience of Talent Development environments which they can bring to the Breakfast Club discussions. Talent Coaches Breakfast Club is not broadly considered suitable for Level 2 UKCC qualified coaches or for those without experience working with talent identified athletes or player.

Talent Coaches Breakfast Clubs are an excellent way of supporting coaches who have been identified by their Governing Body for future development and investment.
