It is permissible for a coach qualified with the previous Level 1 qualifications to apply for the Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Badminton (UKCC). The coaches must meet the pre-requisites for the course:
- Be at least 18 years old
- Should have experience of coaching as an assistant coach
In order to bridge some of the gaps between the old Level 1 course and the Level 1 Certificate in Coaching Badminton (UKCC) a short home study pack has been developed, along with some short answer questions to check for understanding.
This will be sent to candidates once they have registered for the course and should be completed before the start date of the Level 2. Whilst it does not form part of the formal assessment the tutor will look at the responses to tailor the course accordingly. At the moment there is no plan to charge coaches for the bridging pack when they are progressing up a level from the old Level 1 to UKCC Level 2.
Applications for the UKCC Level 2 from coaches with older Level 1 equivalent qualifications (e.g. leaders award) will be considered on individual merit.
