Our Coach Education Programme provides the courses needed in order to meet the Minimum Standards for Active Coaches. In order to ensure Excellent Coaching Every Time for Everyone, sports coach UK, along with key industry Partners, agreed core standards that all coaches in the UK should adhere to (previously referred to as core minimum standards for deployment). The Minimum Standards for Active Coaches guidance can be found here and provides recommendations across the following five areas:

  • minimum age
  • appropriate qualifications
  • appropriate insurance cover
  • safeguarding children and vulnerable groups
  • policies and procedures.
