In these most challenging of circumstances, we are delighted to be able to confirm that we will be opening up the application process for the next cohort of coaches to our Level 4 Coaching Certificate programme. This cohort will have scheduled entry onto the programme from September 2020.
The British Equestrian Level 4 Coaching Certificate (endorsed by UKCC) is a bespoke programme created to develop your skills and knowledge to further your coaching. The Level 4 qualification is for high-performing coaches with considerable experience and it involves an advanced syllabus of professional academic education. It isn’t exclusive to coaches working in a high-performance environment – we've had coaches from Pony Club and Riding for the Disabled in addition to those from the Olympic sports and beyond.
You can find out more about Level Four by clicking here.
The first element in the whole process is the information day. This year, this will be in three stages:
Participating in these webinars isn't a prerequisite to applying for the course, but we would strongly recommend that any coach considering the Level 4 Programme to participate in both these webinars. If any coach is interested in the Level 4 programme, but is unable to attend either of the webinars, we will make the presentations available to any who registers.
The pre-requisite for consideration for the Level 4 qualification is either a Level 3 Equestrian Coaching Certificate in general riding or one of the equestrian disciplines or at least a BHS Stage 4 Senior Coach in Complete Horsemanship (this includes Stage 5 Performance Coach in Complete Horsemanship and a Fellow of the BHS) or a Riding for the Disabled Advanced Coach. Readiness for the Level 4 Programme will be assessed via the application process and face to face interviews. Prior qualifications at the right level does not guarantee access to this programme.
To register for the information day webinars, please email Melissa.Kinrade@bef.co.uk by Sunday 10 May.
