UK Coaching Summit
Jul 7, 2023 - 12:41:57 PM

Jim Messenger and Jon Wyse recently attended the two-day UK Coaching Summit in Cardiff on behalf of BAFA.

The UK Coaching Summit is the annual event run by sportscoach UK highlighting the development and future direction of the UK Coaching Framework; the national strategy for coach and coaching development. The Summit was attended by representatives from over 50 sports as well as representatives from the four Home Country Sports Councils, County Sports Partnerships, further and higher education institutes and many other agencies involved in coach development.

During the Summit, Jim and Jon had the opportunity to attend several work groups on coaching development and contribute to the continued development of the UK Coaching Framework.

BAFCA President Jim Messenger said; "This is the fourth year I have attended the Summit. The opportunity it presents, not only to gather new information, but to fly the flag for British American football and to build relationships with other sports and sports agencies is outstanding."

BAFCA Director of Coach Education, Jon Wyse , said of the Summit: 'This was a valuable opportunity to top-up our knowledge on the progression of  coach education and the UK Coaching Certificate standard. Whilst we are not yet able to achieve the full endorsement for this we are continuing to work towards the criteria by aligning with the National Occupational Standards for coaching practice. The new approach will be evident in the new Level 2 coach qualification due to be launched in the very near future."
