Coach Education Pathway
10 May : 05:22  by admin
This document details the information required for coach qualification and progression through each level. The current BTBA Certification structure is this;



*Three certification levels are ETBF compliant and carry participation and subsequently full coach status:



GOTO:- ETBF COACHING ACADEMY

Following attendance at a course an ETBF Participation certificate will be issued and upon successfully passing the post-course online test they will receive BTBA Coach Certification. In order to participate in the next level a coach must satisfy the relevant criteria for their current certification and achieve the necessary C.E.Us (continued education units) and deliver the requisite number of coaching hours. ONLY on completion of CEUs and monitored hours will coaches be awarded full ETBF Coach Status.
Participation and Certification Procedures






Continued Professional Development Program

To maintain the quality of coaching standards in our country we require coaches at all levels to ensure that they keep their knowledge and skills up to date. This will be achieved through a series of enhancement seminars held regionally each year as well as delivering a minimum number of coaching hours.

ENHANCEMENTS

Each enhancement will also count towards your annual coaching hours. This chart highlights the type and number of enhancements for each level.



Enhancement Module Topics



Fast Track Option (*)

Once a coach has achieved the required enhancements, they can gain CEUs by assisting at future enhancement and current level courses.

In exceptional circumstances the Director of Coaching and the Director of Sport Development (or equivalent titles) jointly reserve the right to allow individuals on a case by case basis to fast-track one or more levels. This can only be considered by written application.

*** IMPORTANT LICENCE INFORMATION ***
13 Apr : 11:21  by admin
WHITE LICENSE ANNOUNCEMENT


In our continuing efforts to update our member services, the safeguarding and protection of our students and pupils, especially children, is of paramount importance.

We need to maintain our credibility within the wider sports community and raise awareness for everyone
who wishes to have lessons and coaching sessions,that they do so in a safe and protected environment.

We have started the process by introducing the annual license renewal which enables us to check
individual status via the DBS online update service and provide insurance cover for coaches, instructors and officials alike.

In the light of recent events in other sports we have decided to speed it up further, by bringing forward the deadline date for the renewal of all old “White Licenses” to August 31st 2017.

This means that all white license holders must apply for a new license to begin no later than
1st September 2017 in order to continue coaching.

Additionally, all instructors/coaches who hold “Phase” or “T” (transition) status must update their coaching knowledge to either FUNdamentals Coach or Foundation Coach status before the end of 2017 to continue coaching from 1st January 2018.

It is vital that all our dedicated coaches have the most up-to-date knowledge and skills so that we have consistency across the country.

We understand that this acceleration may cause some concern, we have created several methods to
enable you to complete that process on time and maintain your status teaching a sport that we know you have a great love and affection for.

I’m sure we would all agree that this is especially necessary in YBCs where the protection and safeguard of all our children is, of course, our primary concern.

PAYMENT OPTIONS

We would like to offer all current white license holders who intend to carry on coaching and wish to renew, the following payment options:

If you can pay the whole amount by bank transfer or debit card in advance you will receive a 5% discount please do so as soon as possible to facilitate course bookings, preferably before 31st May 2017.
