The future of coaching (2)

Further to the post last week on coaching (and bugs), I came across this, from Tony Dallimore, Education Director at Coachwise (parent body for 1st4Sports Qualifications, the awarding body for cricket coaching qualifications in the UK) on the role of the sports activator (and, in passing, on the level 2 qualification).

Specifically, Tony writes (my emphasis) “…some sports are finding that they don’t have the assistant roles for the people they’ve trained [to level 1] and are now looking at the alternatives. One approach could be to start coaches on a smaller Level 2 qualification (which means they can work without supervision), progressing to the current industry-standard Level 2 Certificate in a particular sport.”
