The British Equestrian Federation and British Rowing are working with the University of Gloucestershire to deliver the UKCC Level 4 Coaching Qualification, the course is a bespoke programme developed specifically for both sports.
The UKCC level 4 qualification is for 'high performing' coaches and it involves an advanced syllabus of professional education for coaches with considerable experience; it is not exclusive to coaches working in a 'high performance' environment.
Vision for a UKCC Level 4 coach
UKCC Level 4 coaches will be visionary and knowledgeable decision makers who display exceptional skills, behaviours and the highest professional and ethical standards. They will advance their own and others' development; lead cutting-edge programmes, or a specialist part of a programme; and make a positive impact on sport performance and behaviour.
The Level 4 Coaching Qualification provides coaches with a Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip) in Professional Practice in Sport Coaching and is designed to support and credit learning within the workplace. Forming an integral part of the UKCC Level 4 qualification for high performing coaches it has been created around work-based learning (WBL) modules focused on skills, knowledge and understanding needed to develop professional practice as well as the ability to manage academic learning.
Please Note: The BEF will be the awarding body for the UKCC Level 4 Qualification, although the PG Dip element of the course will be certified by the University of Gloucestershire.
