Badminton England, in collaboration with UK Coaching, is pleased to present an exciting, bespoke, free 12-month programme in leadership and performance for aspirational female coaches.

The programme, which will start in February 2022, is designed to support the development of influential and upcoming leaders within coaching, ready to act as role models to inspire a generation of future athletes and coaches.

We at Badminton England want to make Badminton more reflective of those who play the sport and the communities they are based in and become the nation’s most accessible, diverse and inclusive sport through an unrelenting focus on equality, diversity and inclusion.

The programme aims to support female coaches by increasing the competence and confidence of coaches, so they are able and willing to transition through the pathway, while being positive role models to drive the development of female coaches and players at all levels of the sport.

The programme aims to support female coaches in:

  • Progressing in coaching roles along the England Junior Programme.
  • Increasing their confidence in a performance coaching environment
  • Creating role models to drive the development of female coaches and players at all levels of the sport

This will be achieved by:

  • Providing opportunities for female coaches to connect and build their network of support.
  • Providing opportunities to share, challenge thinking, make sense and reflect on lived experiences.
  • Utilising the Coach Learning Framework to develop knowledge, skills, and coaching behaviours for coaching in a performance pathway environment.

The interactions, face-to-face and virtually, will be practical, reflective and highly relevant, underpinned by expert research.

This approach will allow coaches to develop a better understanding of themselves, relationships, the environment, and their coaching practice

The deadline for applications is Friday 17th December.
