Coaches are vital to our sport. Without the commitment of those who choose to guide and train athletes of all ages, abilities and disciplines, athletics simply would not exist.

The backbone of the coach’s journey is formed by the UKA qualifications that we offer around the country. Courses are available for everyone from complete beginners (such as the Jog Leader or Leading Athletics courses) to the most experienced.

For those who are already qualified, we offer a wide range of CPD opportunities to help you improve your skills and experience. These range from resources for working with primary school-age children to National Coaching Weekends with internationally-renowned figures.

You can explore all our coaching qualifications and CPD resources using the menus on the left of this page. Useful documents can be downloaded below.
