Following an in-depth review and consultation process with a range of stakeholders including past and present level 3 coaches, British Triathlon coaching staff, coach developers, Professional Coaches and Academics specialising in coaching and coach development, have re-designed the Level 3 Qualification, ensuring it meets the needs and aspirations of triathlon coaches for 2017 and beyond.
The Level 3 High Performing Coach Programme has been designed to revolutionise the way British Triathlon currently develops coaches, informed by the latest research in adult learning and coach education and based on over 10 years’ experience of delivering the level 3 qualification.
The programme focuses on coach and athlete development, supporting individuals to achieve their goals and ambitions. The ethos for the course is that it is coach-centred, with a strong emphasis on challenging existing knowledge and developing further understanding through a culture of collaboration and shared experience. The coaches take full responsibility for their personal development, whilst receiving full support and guidance from a carefully selected team of the world-leading coach developers and mentors.
