Elevate Programme

ELEVATE is designed specifically for female coaches aspiring to progress within their sport performance pathway, in order to help them extend their role, profile, and impact.

Overview

The ELEVATE programme explores issues relevant to female coaches and focuses on areas of leadership that will enhance both coaching and personal impact. It will connect coaches to a network of supportive and inspirational women. We involve the coaches sport and share responsibility for creating learning opportunities within which everyone can realise their potential.

Coaches will be supported through an individual development plan process and explore ways to maximise their career progression. They will develop awareness and confidence in their coaching and leadership style and explore ways to develop personal impact.

As part of the programme, coaches will have the opportunity to:

  • Develop a plan to progress their career and strategies to fulfil their potential
  • Develop greater confidence in their coaching and leadership style
  • Develop reflective practice
  • Develop coaching knowledge and skills that have personal relevance and impact
  • Grow their network of support

Coaches will be nominated by their sport. It is essential that the NGB has considered the career trajectory and succession planning of the coaches they put forward.

Who is it for?

 

The programme is aimed at female coaches (18+) who are:

  • Working in UK Sport funded sports
  • Coaching at a regional or national level with athletes in the Talent and/or Performance stage of the athlete pathway (14-21 years age range)
  • Committed to their own development and open to the opportunities on the programme
  • Looking to develop confidence and strategies for overcoming the unique challenges women face
  • Coaching on a regular basis.
