Coaching Plan for England - 2016

In 2016 Sport England released the Coaching Plan for England.

Following an extended period of consultation and research to pinpoint a series of guiding principles, commitments and actions, the new Coaching Plan for England aims to cultivate a community of coaches that inspire and motivate an active nation.

The coaching plan for England looks at:

  • How the coaching family is changing and the dual impact and benefits of the coaching experience
  • Coaching and behaviour change – how we help people get active and stay active, engage inactive people and encourage a regular habit
  • The current state of play, the diversity of the coaching community and the barriers to success
  • The road ahead and tactics to employ so that everybody can benefit from the wide-reaching benefits of coaching.

The plan is a call to action for everyone in the coaching community in England to modernise how we think and talk about coaching – and a quest to find new ways to improve the quality of coaching for everybody.

Whether you are thinking about becoming a coach, new to coaching or have been coaching in a voluntary or paid capacity for some time – these pages are designed to provide you with useful information.

Make sure you register and complete your coaching profile to stay in the loop with everything coaching related in Somerset. You'll have access to news, resources, opportunities and much more. If you're a female coach then make sure you sign up to Reach, a national campaign to support women in coaching.
