UKCC

The BEF is endorsed to deliver (in partnership with our member bodies) at UKCC Levels 1, 2, 3 and 4.

UKCC principles

  • Puts Riders/Drivers/Vaulters at the heart of what we do.
  • Flexible qualification for all, in all coaching environments; technical pathways for riding, driving, vaulting and discipline specific such as endurance, RDA, dressage, showjumping and eventing at different levels.
  • Builds on existing good practice and provides a career structure.
  • Ongoing opportunities for training and development.
  • Aspiring Coaches can be assured of standardised qualification.

What is expected at each UKCC Level?

The role of the Level 1 coach is to: 'Assist more qualified coaches, delivering aspects of coaching sessions, normally under direct supervision' 

The role of the Level 2 coach is to: 'Prepare for, deliver and review coaching sessions' 

The role of the Level 3 coach is to: 'Plan, implement, analyse and revise annual coaching programmes' 

A Level 4 coach is a beacon ‘high performing’ coach in their specific coaching environment ie. disability, U13, U18, adult, talent, world class.

What is common to coaching at all levels?

  • Plan (Planning process)
  • Do (Conducting coaching sessions)
  • Review (Review the coaching session/process)
