UKBJJA COACHING QUALIFICATION
New Online Coaching Skills Training – Available Spring 2021
These new online courses are designed to help you teach and develop your athletes in the most effective way possible. They are fully accredited and lead to the following qualifications:
1st4sport Level 1 Award in Assistant Coaching (Sport and Physical Activity)
The 1st4sport Level 1 Award in Assistant Coaching (Sport and Physical Activity) provides you with an introduction to coaching sport and physical activity at an assistant coach level. This qualification may support a role in the workplace, either in paid or voluntary occupations, as support for a Level 2 or Level 3 qualified sports coach.
Successful achievement of the qualification enables learners to apply the principles of safe and effective sport and physical activity sessions to a group of participants, under the supervision of more qualified coaches. Successful learners will develop an understanding of appropriate coaching skills and knowledge to be able to support the delivery and review of coaching sessions.
1st4sport Level 2 Award in the Principles of Coaching Sport
The 1st4sport Level 2 Award in the Principles of Coaching Sport provides you with the knowledge needed to develop your confidence and start on the road to an engagement with coaching sport. Utilising the common-knowledge units for coaching, learners gain the required generic knowledge that all sports coaches need to plan, conduct and evaluate safe and effective coaching sessions in sport. This includes:
- the fundamentals of coaching sport
- how to develop participants through coaching sport
- how to support participants’ lifestyles through coaching sport
- the principles of safe and equitable coaching practice.
The qualification also provides the foundation for all Level 2 UK Coaching Certificate (UKCC) sport-specific coaching programmes.
The UKBJJA is committed to helping every instructor give the best possible experience to their students.
Our education programme is designed to give you the competencies and qualifications you need to teach effecttive, safe and enjoyable sessions to all your students regardless of age.
We do not aim to tell you how to teach BJJ – how you teach jiu jitsu is up to you and we will always preserve the individuality of the sport. Instead, by offering an extensive programme of continuous professional development (CPD), we can help you become the best coach you possibly can be.
