Coaching and leadership

We want to increase the number of quality coaches, leaders and instructors in Wales.

Coaches and leaders are important to our strategy - Climbing Higher and our targets for increasing participation in sport and physical activity.

Through our 5x60 programme we are providing young people with opportunities to gain leadership qualifications. These can give them the confidence and skills to gain further qualifications and employment.

We invest £1.068m each year for the development of coaching.

UK Coaching Certificate

The Coaching Plan for Wales is supporting national governing bodies of sport in implementing the UK Coaching Certificate (UKCC).
UKCC is a generic coaching qualification that provides coaches with transferable skills across sports and the UK.

Coaching Wales (external link) provides advice for new and existing coaches and leaders, and information on how to become a coach.
