When we talk about continuing professional development (CPD) for coaches, we mean any learning that improves a coaches’ practice outside of coaching qualifications or training for compliance e.g. safeguarding training or first aid training.
We will be working to categorise CPD for equestrian coaches into four different types of learning outcomes to encourage coaches to invest in all four to ensure a balanced learning programme...
With this in mind, British Equestrian and our Member Bodies have developed a number of different programmes to help coaches in our industry to develop the learning outcomes listed above and to offer a better experience to those horses and riders they work with.
