National and Local Coach Development Programme (NCDP)

The National Coach Development Programme (NCDP) is a programme for high level coaches. It is organised by our team of Coach and Athlete Development Managers primarily for coaches qualified at Athletics Coach level of higher (or former Level 3 and 4).

Coaching LCDP logoThe Local Coach Development Programme caters for qualified coaches below this level with a range of activities targeted to suit their needs and stage of development.

Our work in coach development is focussed on creating opportunities for learning and development to continue, and for coaches to continue to access a range of support. We organise national conferences, regional and local ‘cells’ (networks of coaches), event group networking opportunities; and we work to develop a ‘support’ coach network (mentoring through the volunteer community).
