National Coaching Award
Levels 1 - 3
From Junior Leadership, Assistant Coaches, Club Coaches and Senior Coaches, investing in and developing the role of the coach through a proper award scheme is vital for the future of any sports organisation.
Improving the quality of coaches will improve the delivery of skills and information and create opportunities for coaches to develop and improve their own coaching and performance skills.
We are proud to be able to invest in coaches and coaching at every level and to provide pathways for our members to coach to the highest standards.
The UK Tae Kwon Do Commission accepts that the benchmark for safe coaching practice is measured against officially recognised National Occupational Standards of competence and that other so-called National Governing Body, association or international instructor certification is often meaningless and offers no guarantees of safe practice or quality assurance.
As a Focus Awards Accredited Centre we have had to undergo a strict quality control evaluation process and put in place robust management systems and internal quality assurance arrangements to achieve recognised centre accredited status. (Centre No RFC025)
Focus Awards have helped us to develop a National Coaching Qualification and course materials and to identify that we possess the necessary trained and qualified staff to assess and quality assure the award scheme.
