Coach Qualification Retention Research

sports coach UK has identified evidence to suggest coaches attend workshops and training sessions but do not undertake final assessments and go on to achieve full coaching qualifications.

To understand the factors that influence coaches’ decisions to complete qualifications, we are conducting new research with coaches in the following sports:

  • Badminton
  • Equestrian
  • Hockey
  • Squash and Racketball
  • Tennis

If you are a coach in one of these sports and have either completed a coaching qualification or started a qualification but not completed it, we would be very keen to hear from you.

We will be conducting telephone interviews with coaches in November, and these should only take around 10 minutes to complete.

If you are a coach who meets the criteria above and would like to be involved, please contact Michael Hopkinson, Research Consultant at sports coach UK on t: 0113 290 7632 m: 07904 234 850 e-mail: [email protected], indicating a convenient telephone number and date/time to contact you on.

We will also be conducting interviews throughout the day on Thursday 14 November if this is convenient for you.

Thanks in advance for your help.
