Organiser's Description

Triathlon Foundation Coach - Edinburgh University

 

Important: Subsidy Application

Please ensure that you complete the Education Subsidy Application Form below BEFORE you sign up for the course (deadline is 1 month prior to your course start date).  This is to ensure that you pay the correct amount for your course if eligible for the Education Subsidy.

Education Subsidy Application Form

Read more about the Education Subsidy process here.

Course Sign Up Process

The course sign up on Entry Central is application based, which means that we have to approve all sign ups before a spot is taken. We will not approve any sign ups until the Subsidy Applications have been assessed for that course. Everything will be based on a first come first served basis, and will be processed in date order.

Course Information

On completion of this qualification, you will be able to plan and deliver safe coaching activities under direct supervision from a Group/Level 2 Coach or above.

The course follows a blended learning approach involving a series of self-led online learning modules, two online workshops facilitated by a tutor, and one face-to-face development day.

You are required to complete all components of the course, including attending all online workshops and the face-to-face day, as well as completing all units of the e-learning content and submitting a coaching diary.

Rather than completing an end-of-learning assessment task, the tutor will ensure that they check in with you throughout your learning experience to make a formative assessment of your level of competence and understanding.

Pre-requisites

  • Minimum age: 14 years at course start date. If you are aged 18 and under you will be required to have a parent/guardian complete a parental consent form as part of your application.
  • Have a valid British Triathlon Home Nations membership (Core or Ultimate package).

Course Details

Full attendance is needed for all online workshops and the face-to-face development day. Please ensure you can attend the online workshops and dates as listed. Whilst we will aim to record all online workshops this cannot be guaranteed.
