Coach Training, Development and Accreditation

 

Quality coaching is the most powerful tool a sport has for promoting participation at all levels in a safe and effective environment. Unfortunately, some mainstream coach training and accreditation schemes have gotten rather lost of late, seemingly going for administrative convenience over genuine development and high standards. Ensuring a clear ‘development pathway’ for coaches provides encouragement, helps to keep things fresh and knowledge current, and also offers a clear set of goals for ongoing professional progress.

Grey Matters have worked with several National Governing Bodies, both in the UK and Internationally, to support the development of Coach Education and Accreditation systems. We have designed schemes from scratch, scoping out the nature and traditions of the sport, then designing bespoke systems for consideration, tweaking and deployment. In other cases, NGBs have consulted us on refinements or major changes which they want to implement. In all cases, our aim is to leave the organisation with an effective practical and working system, which the sport can lead and refine.

Greg Symes, Motor Sports Association, Academy Manager We have been fortunate to work with Grey Matters for a number of years focusing specifically on the creation of the first ever accredited Coaching Pathway within UK motorsport, Coach Development for our own staff and the augmentation of talent development systems. Throughout our relationship, GM have challenged us, providing academically evidenced solutions tailored to our requirements whilst ensuring that the people within our organisation are developed. This has enabled us to progress at a higher level and on a more autonomous basis whereby we thrive on challenge and driving forwards. As an organisation and as individuals we are in a far better position due to the support received from GM.
