This qualification is for those who have some experience in coaching angling and would like to lead in a position of coaching, whether independently, within a club or at a fishery. Lead coaches will plan and deliver coaching activities as well as directing the operations of Angling Support Coaches in a safe and appropriate environment.
Most coaches are likely to have taken their Level 1 qualification through Angling Trust’s own Coaching Centre, and the Centre staff would therefore have access to the record of certification. Alternatively, if you qualified through a different organisation such as Angling Cymru we’ll welcome you onto one of our Level 2 courses, but we’ll ask you to supply a copy of your 1st4sport certificate.
The cost of a Level 1 course is £345, which includes tuition, registration and certification. In addition you’ll be eligible after qualification to take up the first year of coach licensing without the usual annual fee.
