Learning Hub

The Learning hub is the e-learning resource for all British Triathlon Coaches.

Guidelines and Insurance


To ensure the delivery of safe and engaging sessions, British Triathlon has developed comprehensive guidelines for coaches, activators and leaders. These guidelines provide valuable insights and recommendations on various factors, including environments, remits, and appropriate participant ratios. These guidelines serve as a valuable resource to coaches, activators and leaders empowering them to create a secure and inclusive environment.

Coaching Guidelines are aimed at all coaches and activators (activators qualified pre-2023).

Leader Guidelines are aimed at Swim Bike Run Leaders. 

By following these guidelines, coaches, activators and leaders can confidently deliver sessions that prioritise the safety and well-being of all participants.

Coaching Code of Practice

As part of their qualification or award, all coaches, activators and leaders are required to sign up to the Code of Practice. This code serves as a professional standard that outlines the expected behaviour and ethical principles for individuals in these roles. It ensures that coaches, activators and leaders maintain the highest standards of integrity, respect, and inclusivity while carrying out their responsibilities. The Code of Practice is a crucial component of our commitment to upholding professional standards within the triathlon community. To familiarise yourself with the code and it’s guiding principles, you can find it here. By adhering to this code, coaches, activators and leaders play an essential role in creating a positive and supportive environment for all participants in the sport of triathlon.

Fair Assessment 

We take pride in our commitment to fair assessment practices to ensure a transparent and equitable evaluation process. As such, we have implemented a comprehensive Fair Assessment Policy that outlines our approach to assessment and grading. This policy provides clear guidelines and procedures to ensure that all learners are evaluated fairly and consistently. We believe in fostering an environment where individuals have equal opportunities to demonstrate their knowledge and skills. By upholding these standards, we aim to provide a fair and unbiased assessment experience for all learners, promoting a sense of trust and confidence in the assessment process. 

Health and Safety 

We prioritise the health and safety of all learners in our courses and events. As part of our commitment to ensuring a safe environment, we have developed a robust Health and Safety Policy. This policy outlines our comprehensive approach to risk management and sets forth guidelines to minimise potential hazards. We conduct thorough risk assessments of all our course venues to identify and address any potential risks. It is our utmost priority to provide a secure and protected learning environment for everyone involved. 

Supervision Requirements for Children and Young People

British Triathlon is dedicated to expanding the ways in which swim, bike, run is offered and making it accessible to more children and young people than ever before.

Our primary focus is to create an enjoyable and safe experience for all children and young people, emphasising the importance of their wellbeing. This involves minimising the risk of injury or illness during participation and implementing robust safeguarding practices to ensure the protection of everyone involved.

To support this, British Triathlon is introducing supervision requirements for clubs, coaches, leaders and activators when delivering to children and young people. These requirements must be implemented and adhered to by 31st July 2024.
