How to book on and pay for a qualification

During the pilot period the courses listings section of the England Athletics website will have a link leading from those courses which are part of the pilot through to their listing at uLearn. You will not need to navigate to the course you want twice.

When uLearn is fully launched to book onto a qualification, simply click on the Qualifications Tab. If you already know which qualification you are looking to book onto - please select it from the list on the right hand side. If you are unsure, please use either the decision tree, or the resources in the qualifications boxes.

You will then need to enter your postcode and dates of the course if relevant and click search. This will bring up the list of available course. Please select one from the list and click 'Book Now'. Check your details are correct and read and agree to the terms and conditions. Once you press continue, you will be booked onto the course

England Athletics Club Discounts

If you coach at a club affiliated to England Athletics then you are entitled to a 'Club Discount' off certain coaching qualifications. To access this you will need your club's affiliation number as printed on the Club's Affiliation Certificate (note this is different to your own personal licence number). Your club secretary or another committee member such as the membership secretary will be able to give you this number.

To enable your club discount at checkout look for the 'Club Discount' box when you will need to input the club affiliation number.

Find pre- and post- course resources for a course you are already booked on

uLearn has all the relevant Pre, Post and On course resources that you will need to assist you. To find all the information, simply click here and click on the relevant qualification that you are looking for.

Your Username and Password

How do I find my username?

Your username is your Unique Reference Number (URN), which is the same as your coach license number printed on your licence in 99% of cases.

If you do not know your URN you can also find it by following the instructions on the 'forgotten username' button when logging in. If the data in our national coaching database is not up to date then you may have problems recovering your username with this method. In this case please contact England Athletics' Membership Services team and they can update this information over the phone.

How do I find my Password?

In order to reset your password you must have access to the email address registered on the National Coaching Database. This is the email address that you supplied when you last took a coaching qualification. To get this email address updated to a more current address please contact England Athletics' Membership Services team and ask them to do this for you.

If you have forgotten your password - please press the 'Forgot password' button. This will prompt you to enter your URN. If you do not know your URN, please read the above help section. Once you have entered your URN, your password will be emailed to you, to the email address that is registered to you on the National Coaching Database

The video below shows how to do this:


 

Logging in if you have an existing coaches license

Yes you do. Every coach who has taken a qualification will have a URN. Your user name is simply this URN which is printed on your Coaches License.

Once you have your user name, you can follow the steps to reset your password. If you can't find your URN, or you have changed your email address since you took your coaches qualification, please contact England Athletics' Membership Services team so your details can be updated.

Remember that you can log into the existing Coach Portal at www.englandathletics.org/myprofile to keep your personal details up to date as well as being able to view your qualifications as well as the dates and information on courses you have already attended.

Problems playing any of the videos?

If you are unable to play any of the videos, you may not have the correct software downloaded on your computer.

You will therefore need to download a multimedia player that will play videos in all formats. We recommend downloading VLC player.

To download VLC player, please click the link below:

Go to VLC PLAYER

Once on the website, click on the button 'download VLC'. You will then need to follow the instructions on your screen to download the player. Please be aware that any problems encountered downloading or using VLC player must be directed to VLC themselves, not British Athletics.

You can contact VLC Support by clicking on this link: www.videolan.org/support
