Is the Sessional Coach course the same as old Level 2 Coaching in Hockey?

The Sessional Course and the Coach Course both sit on the same UKCC Qualifications framework at Level two. Which is the same as the Level 2 courses delivered in the past.

The difference is that the content and structure has been updated to reflect the new GB Coaching Philosophy, and is now more flexible and accessible to attend with more practically applied content, and online portfolio tasks that you can complete at a time that suits you.

The Coach Course includes one extra module linked to Practice Design and Defending, and a number of extra portfolio tasks to complete which would require you to be coaching regularly with the same group.

If you hold an old Level 2 Qualification we would recommend you access one of these new courses or our online workshops to keep your learning current. Even though you have already attended the Level 2 Course before, with different content, coach developers and different attendees, we have no doubt you will still find this a useful experience, and take away new ideas and information to apply to your coaching.
