Excellent Coaching Every Time for Everyone – The vision for coaching in the UK

The UK Coaching Framework provides a common vision and reference point for the development of coaching. Following a review to ensure that it represents the current UK environment, the Framework has been revised. To view more information on the Framework please click here.  

In line with the vision of Excellent Coaching Every Time for Everyone, the Framework contains four headline objectives that by March 2017 we will have

• more appropriately qualified and skilled coaches

• a more diverse workforce

• a culture of self-improvement

• a better-supported workforce

contributing to sustained and increased participation and improved performances in sport.

The Coaching Committee, which reports to the sports coach UK Board, will review progress on an annual basis. To support this, a four year delivery plan has been established. That plan will form the basis of discussions at the UK Coaching Summit on 11-12 June, co-hosted by the Football Association.

We look forward to welcoming you to St. George’s Park for an inspiring event which will provide the forum to confirm next steps for coaching, highlight excellent coaching practice and offer networking time to share ideas. Our keynote speakers include Rod Carr CBE, Chair of UK Sport and Katherine Grainger CBE, Britain’s most successful female rower. If you haven’t already booked your place at the Summit, there is still time to find out more and book your place here.

From 2012 to this year’s major events and looking ahead to the Commonwealth Games in 2014, sporting activity is still high on our nation’s agenda. We are keen that excellent coaching is also high on the agenda and that its impact is recognised at every level. Together, using the Framework as a catalyst for excellent coaching practice, we can continue to raise the standards of coaching and get closer to achieving Excellent Coaching Every Time for Everyone.
