Posted: Wed, 06 Jun 2018 15:39
The Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) and UK Coaching have today released the first sector professional standards related to coaching in the UK.
The new standards provide an agreed reference point of the knowledge, skills and behaviours required of coaching assistants and coaches, and will not only inform the development of future coaching qualifications and training but also support the effective deployment of coaches.
The new professional standards for Coach and Coaching Assistant have been developed by employers, supported by CIMSPA, UK Coaching and national organisations such as Association for Physical Education, Youth Sport Trust and ukactiveKIDS, who along with others make up the sector's Community Sport Professional Development Committee.
The development of the Coach and Coaching Assistant standards included direct consultation with a wide range of sporting bodies, before an open consultation with the wider sector.
