Assessment day: Saturday 2nd October
Components of the course
The course starts with two days at the specified venue: you work with your tutor and the other members of the course group.
After Day 2 there is a break of five weeks in which you plan and deliver four linked and progressive coaching sessions, with their associated risk assessments and self-evaluations. (You complete these at your own club, fishery or project: they aren’t arranged by Angling Trust staff or your tutor.)
You attend the assessment day to which you bring your coursework and the results of your linked sessions. This will be at the same venue as Days 1 and 2, date and times to be arranged by your tutor.
Requirements for qualification at Level 2
► You must take part in the required online and assessment sessions, and must complete the activities, linked coaching sessions and coursework.
► In addition before you can be certified at Level 2 you must supply the Coaching Centre Administrator with evidence of the following:
- a suitable current First Aid certificate
- a UK Coaching workshop for Safeguarding & Protecting Children, issued in the last 18 months.
First Aid and UKC Safeguarding are not part of the Level 2 course itself, but please see the information supplied to help you source training which will meet the qualification criteria.
