BAFCA Press Release August 2018.
Since the convention the BAFCA Board have been working tirelessly behind the scenes in ensuring our in-house procedures, policies and development plans are in place to ensure that we can deliver the most professional service to our members. We have taken on board your feedback from the convention and your comments via social media with regards to the Coach Education Continuum, the upgrading of pre 2016 Level 1 qualifications, ongoing CPD, the delivery of Level 1 and 2 qualifications plus much more. This constructive feedback is essential for us to move forward as an organisation and to ensure that all of our members receive a quality service and the health, safety and insurance of our members and their players is always at the forefront of our developments.
In the coming weeks there are a number of Level 1 courses happening around the country. We are trying to add an additional course in Scotland and extend the course at Brunel we will announce as soon as we have confirmation of these. All of our coach education courses will happen in block periods each year. These will be Sept/Oct, Dec/Jan, Mar/Apr and June/July.
We will also take this opportunity to again ask if anyone would like to become a coach educator please contact us via email@example.com
We are working closely with the new BAFA board and a major partner which we will be able to announce shortly to provide a number of development opportunities and address some of the comments you have raised in regards to the pre 2016 Level 1 qualifications, Heads Up Courses, ongoing CPD, the delivery of Level 1 and 2 qualifications. Also, in areas such as registrations, codes of conduct, social media policy, GDPR, course booking options, our new website and online course opportunities.
After the BAFCA Board meeting on Saturday 25th August the energy and excitement within the team was evident and we believe in the coming weeks the areas we have been working on with your feedback will enable us to take a huge step together in ensuring that coaching in the UK is of the highest quality and that our policies, procedures and practices will reflect this.
Thank you for your feedback and patience.
Yours in Coaching – Your BAFCA Board
