Coaching Resources

The Coaching Courses section has been revised in preparation for our next courses. It is planned to run both a Coach Level 1 and a Coaching Refresher Course later this year. The Coaching Refresher Course is a relatively new initiative and is a one day course specifically for those who received their coaching awards more than 5 years ago.
The download section now includes a Coaching Resources section and a section for the CL1 Pre-course Homework.
Applications for courses may be made using the form in the downloads section or online on the BAB website.
