Continued Professional Development

Once qualified it is important for coaches to continue to develop their knowledge and skills within their chosen discipline. It is also very important to look outside the sport and up skill themselves in areas that they are not as familiar with, below is a selection of online options that our partners have on offer for coaches to continue their development. Some of the courses within the links below are free and some you may have to pay for and during this unique time we will be using these courses as part of the coach re-validation process.

All Level 1 & 2 coaches must complete three courses within a three year period and
​Level 3, 4 & 5 coaches must complete three courses within a six year period. If you are unsure of what is suitable or if you have any other queries please contact us through the contact us page and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
