National Coaching Survey: Coaches and coaching in the UK

Tender submission deadline: 10 June 2019  


UK Coaching would like to commission a large scale nationally representative survey of coaching in the UK. This should be comparable with the 2017 survey, ‘Coaching in the UK’. The survey will include coaches (both volunteer and paid) involved in any aspect of coaching or instructing in sport and physical activity. It will also include those who receive coaching (participants), and the general public. The survey should be representative of the UK population.

The survey will include both adults and children and interested suppliers are expected to put forward proposals on how they will collect responses from both groups.
