Athlete to Coach (delivered by England Athletics)

During years of competing, international athletes can acquire technical and tactical knowledge with respect to themselves and their event. The challenge for transitioning athletes is how to transfer and deliver this knowledge and experiences in a way that is meaningful to others.

The Athlete to Coach course is for any athlete who has competed for their Home Nation or Great Britain & Northern Ireland at Senior Level we would love you to help us inspire the next generation of athletes to fulfil their potential. Athlete to Coach is a tailored and intensive training programme that allows you to gain an Athletics Coach qualification and build on the knowledge and skills you have developed throughout your athletics careers.

As such this 5-day programme is designed to challenge the learner to shift their thinking from that of an elite athlete to one of a coach. The content will be delivered by a team of experienced Coach Education Tutors and ex-international athletes (who have already completed this transition). It will be delivered in classroom and practical settings with coaches expected to practice and reflect on content covered between the timetabled days with the support of a qualified coach.
