This qualification is the cornerstone of the On-Track qualifications pathway. The course plus assessment period is a total of four days including a formal practical and written assessment. Candidates will be able to plan a progressive training programme for athletes coaching a range of activities to prepare the developing athlete to run, jump and throw. When qualified you will be insured to coach without supervision.
The programme has been designed for those working with athletes in the Foundation to Event Group Development Stage (typically under 18’s) and advocates a multi-event approach in the development of athletes.
Coaches who opt for this pathway will be expected to develop their technical knowledge and expertise across a range of events in relation to run, jump and throw activities. Developing expertise across a range of events will be advantageous as you progress along the Coach Development Pathway.
