Deploying Coaches in School
Are you a school that utilises coaches for after-school provision?
If so, then Active Partnerships, Association for Physical Education (afPE), CIMSPA, ukactive KIDS, UK Coaching and Youth Sport Trust have developed this guidance for you, supported by Sport England.
The Minimum Deployment Requirements have been developed to help drive the quality of coaching delivered to children and will support the requirement for coaches to demonstrate the knowledge, skills and behaviours to work with children & young people.
School leaders must ensure that coaches have the technical expertise for each activity they are delivering. Out of hours activities delivered directly by school staff or on behalf of the school are the responsibility of the Headteacher and governing body.
These standards are set out in the attachment below:
