The programme is supporting 27 coaches who have recently progressed to coaching within a Podium environment or cross-coaching between Academy and Podium. This 12 month programme will provide a unique and bespoke development of the coach’s ability to prepare for, manage and reflect upon ‘critical coaching moments’ during an Olympic and Paralympic Cycle.
The programme will start officially in April 2023 and includes a blend of learning, from online to in person sessions across the year. The programme will be aligned with the Coaching in High Performance Sport professional standard (CIMSPA).
This coach development programme, delivered by the UK Sport Coach Development team, builds upon learning generated from the High-performance Coach Apprenticeship Programme (HiCAP).
The UK Sport Coach Development team have taken time to listen and understand coaches’, sports’ and Coach Developers’ feedback from HiCAP, which has helped shape the design and structure of CiHPS.
