Updating Qualifications

Coach revalidation

The key message surrounding revalidation is about developing you as a coach through additional skills and knowledge whether it be sport specific or generic up-skilling. The following outlines the process for both level 1 and level 2 coaches.

  • Your coaching qualification will last 3 years and during that time you must undertake a minimum of 1 x CPD session. The session can be sport specific I.e. a Sweeping work shop or a generic Local authority or Sportscoach UK workshop I.e. Coaching Children (5-12yrs) see link Sports Coach UK Workshop Finder .

In addition:

  • Coaches must attend 1x RCCC Coaching Conference within the 3 year time period
  • All coaches must always have a valid Safeguarding and Protecting Children certificate (if coaching children & vulnerable adults) and a valid PVG is also required (if coaching children & vulnerable adults).
  • Coaches won’t be required to ‘re-sit’ the course/classroom element of the qualification
