England Hockey Advanced Coaching Programme now live

The Advanced Coaching Programme applications are now open, this is a two year coach development programme that will move coaches' delivery from good to great and will support them to inspire more, better and happier players in their chosen coaching environment.What is the Advanced Coaching Programme?From our research we know that the formal learning "courses" are not the preferred method of learning for many and that coaches feel that these traditional approaches have limited impact on their coaching practice. Our coaches have told us that they like to learn through communities of practice, peer interaction, mentoring, observation (informal learning) and environment specific workshops.It is a two-year challenge for a limited number of coaches offering structured development and learning that will stretch and develop them as coaches, within their chosen coaching sphere. This is not about certificates, this is about improving coaching, growing more effective coaches, embedding a climate of continuous self-improvement and forging long term coaching connections within hockey through ongoing mentoring and support.Who is it for?The Advanced Coach Programme is for any active coaches who are genuinely keen to advance their coaching for the benefit of their players and the sport. Coaches must be committed to personal development, open to feedback, excited about learning and interested in applying the GB Coaching philosophy in their sessions. The Advanced Coach Programme not only replaces the previous UKCC Level 3 but also goes beyond the bounds of the previous qualification. As such, you must have at least a Level 2, Sessional or Coach qualification to be eligible to participate. The blended nature of this Programme means that this is also suitable for coaches who have completed or are completing the previous UKCC Level 3.Why should I do it? Because this is a pioneering programme committed to supporting coaches to improve their coaching practice for the benefit of their players.Apply here!
