Coaching Refresher Course Launched


Published 22 April 2014

To support new coaches Scottish Cycling are organising a Level 2 coaching refresher course.  The course is split into 2 days with a different focus on each day. 

Day 1 - This course is for anyone that has started a Level 2 coaching award but has not completed it, yet.  If it has been a while since you have started the award and you need a reminded of what the L2 is all about or you need more support in the actual coaching aspect of the award then this is for you.  Where possible content will be tailored to individual needs so on application can you can give an indication of your background. 

As we have specific paper work shops the focus of the day 1 refresher will be more around the practical element of coaching and not on paper work.


◦ Practical coaching - from a rider perspective

◦ Session planning support - discussing and practicing writing successful sessions

◦ Practical Coaching practice - practical application of the sessions written in theory sessions

◦ Video feedback on coaching practice

◦ Peer group feedback

◦ 1-1 tutor feedback

Day 2 –is another chance for those candidates that have not managed to get to their day 3 assessments in order to complete the course.  Furthermore, candidates that have completed day 1 of the refresher course may now be in a position to complete the whole L2 award.


◦ Session plan review and support

◦ Level 2 A2 Practical coaching assessment either to complete the award or to be reassessed

◦ Peer group feedback

◦ 1-1 tutor feedback
