Coach Education

Badminton Wales is currently in the process of planning the migration from our current Coach Education providers UKCC to the Badminton World Federation (BWF) Coach Education Programme. 

As of now Badminton Wales will no longer be booking any future UKCC courses. We are registering interest for our BWF Level 1 Course which is due to commence from January 2019, pending a pilot course to be held in October/November 2018 at Sport Wales National Centre. The pilot will be targeted towards Badminton Wales Regional Academy and Satellite Centre Coaches with the intent of familiarising our newly trained tutors with course material and to allow Badminton Wales the opportunity to review and establish any changes before the official course roll out in January 2019. 

We are confident that the migration to BWF will enable Badminton Wales to provide a comprehensive Coach Education Programme. BWF, in partnership with Badminton Wales, is committed to ongoing support for the development of our current and future coaches across Wales. 

Badminton Wales will be aiming to hold a set number of courses per year at centralised locations in North and South Wales. Further information regarding dates, course costs and validity of current UKCC qualifications will follow in the near future.
