Event Group Coach - completing the qualification

Event Group Coach - completing the qualification

The final element of the Event Group Coach qualification is the 'Integration Day', which provides coaches with an opportunity to discuss and debate their coaching ideas, technical observations and principals of planning.

Essentially the Integration Day brings to life the theoretical content that is covered in the qualification’s online modules.

We have opportunities in the coming weeks for people to complete their integration days. Details of these are below.

England Athletics Education & Workforce Manager, Paul Moseley, said, "We have organised a series of Integration Days which will take place in November / December for coaches who want to complete their Event Group Coach qualification.

"I would encourage those coaches who have completed the online modules of this qualification to book on to one of these Integration Days. The Event Group Integration Day pulls together much of the content covered within the qualification online modules, through discussion and group work, and focuses on the coaching eye and consolidating the planning processes for the development of the athletes. They are also a fantastic opportunity to network with other coaches and to continue the discussions and debates that are generated from the day."
