Further to the fantastic news in relation to the Coach Development and Education Structure in the UK, that was communicated recently, we have more great news regarding the development of the Athletics Coach qualification.
UKA have this week launched the new Athletics Coach Modules that are aimed at complementing the 7 core events that are covered on course. These new Modules are offered as an online learning resource so that eligible coaches can now further progress their own development opportunities within athletics, at the Athletics Coach qualification level. The Modules that will be available over the coming monthsinclude Pole Vault, Triple Jump, Hammer, Discus and Wheelchair Racing and are being developed utilising thecollective knowledge of event specialists from around the World.
In line with the Event Group Module, and to celebrate the unique opportunities afforded the sport in hosting a Home Olympic and Paralympic Games, we have decided to underwrite the costs for eligible coaches to study the qualification until May 2013.
This means the new Coach Education Modules covering Athletics Coach are free of charge for the next 11 months!
Now, coaches in the UK can continue to access the best possible resource and information on uCoach -the website dedicated to coaching content and resource (http://coaching.uka.org.uk/) – as well as the online education qualification simply in exchange for providing us with ongoing feedbackon the new modules.
UKA are proud to be able to offer this part of the coach education structure free of charge -something not many sports will be in a position to do. With athletics playing such a vital part in the Olympics and Paralympics, it is an ideal opportunity for us to build on the legacy of the Games.
Any coach who has achieved the athletics coach qualification in the current structure or is a minimum level 2 coach under the previous structure is eligible to study these modules.
So if you want to be amongst the first to start viewing the new modules and work your way through the Athletics Coach Qualification Modules, or even just to find out more information, then follow this link
