Coach Developer Conservations (S2) (EP 6) Derek O'Riordan - The Changing Coach Developer Landscape

Derek O'Riordan is a coaching partnership manager with sportscotland, a coach developer with Scottish Rugby and Hearts FC, as well as being deployed more broadly with sportscotland. In this podcast, Derek shares his perspectives on the current changes in coach development and coach education in Scotland.

He explores several topics, including the need for an understanding of the socio-cultural influences in coach development in different sports, and the need to meet people where they currently are. He goes on to look at the challenge of transitioning to more contemporary coaching pedagogies and more flexible coach development options, and how to assess the impact and effectiveness of coach development and make it representative of the coaching it supports.

Derek also weighs in with his hopes for the future of coaching and the coach development landscape over the next few years.
