IMPORTANT NOTICE !
What is UKCC?
United Kingdom Coaching Certificate
The UK Coaching Certificate (UKCC) is a national initiative to endorse coach education programmes, across sports throughout the UK, against agreed criteria including:
• the endorsement of the coaching qualification each coach will take
• the development of appropriate resources to deliver effective and high quality coach education programmes
• quality assured administration of coach education provision and
• quality assured training provision of coach education programmes
For sports clubs, the (UKCC) will mean that the coaches you bring into your club, or the members whom you train as coaches, will have been trained to a recognised standard of competency. For parents, this also means that whoever is coaching their children will have been properly prepared to provide appropriate coaching.
Previously, every National Governing Body developed a unique coaching qualification structure in line with the needs of their own sport. Unfortunately this has ultimately resulted in a lack of synergy between sports UK wide.
The Implementation of the UKCC will address these issues and ensure a standard approach to the delivery of coach education across the UK.
Scottish Gymnastics have already implemented UKCC Level 1 qualification and Level 2 being launched early September 2009.
Are there any other changes that I should be aware of?
Yes, previously coaches wishing to obtain a level one could attend at 14ys and obtain their certificate when they became 15yrs old. Potential coaches, from August 2008, wishing to access any of the UKCC Level 1 courses across all disciplines will now have to be 16yrs old before commencement of course.
Candidates wishing to access UKCC Level 2 will have to be 17yrs before the first day of the course and will not be certified untill they are 18yrs.
UKCC Level 1 - £350
UKCC Level 2 - £520
