Generic Coach Education Courses

Coach Education is essential for the development of sport across the county. ANGUSalive is keen to support local coaches with information on current courses that will be taking place within Angus itself and also across the Tayside region.

Courses available range from National Governing Body/(UKCC) qualifications through to sports coach UK.

The UK coaching certificate (UKCC) is working with 31 national governing bodies of sport to agree an endorsement of sport specific coach education qualifications that are aligned to an agreed framework. By creating a recognised standard for coach education the UKCC makes it easier to identify a quality coach in any sport at any level. We are committed to hosting these qualification opportunities across Angus as well as working with partners across National Governing Bodies to access non UKCC qualifications.

The sports coach UK workshops allow the development of coaches at every level. ANGUSalive are committed to hosting a number of these workshops throughout each year. Information on these workshops will be listed on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Any coaches who live in Angus or work with an Angus Sports Club who are looking to gain a qualification from a National Governing Body (NGB) can apply for grant aid support through our Coaching Angus Scheme.

We work closely with our regional partners at sportscotland in order to ensure that coaches in Angus can progress their coaching skills to the highest level possible. sportscotland offer a coach UKCC subsidies that provides coaches with a support structure whether they are learning, developing or a performance coach.

Active Schools & Angus Alive are working together with our partners to put together a quarterly CPD calendar. The courses on offer aim to provide volunteers with new ideas to support what they are delivering in their schools and communities, some of these will provide a formal qualification. They will be led by qualified tutors, regional development officers and college lecturers.
