6 Your chance to contribute
Since you were last invited to post to the course forum you have explored a lot of material (relationships, power and teaching) and you probably have some valuable thoughts about these ideas and your coach developer role. You are reminded that a posting is not a requirement in order to obtain a digital badge.
By posting to the course forum you will help ensure that the wider coach developer community voice is heard. Any consensus evident on this forum will be communicated to Sport England, UK Coaching, CIMSPA and other appropriate organisations to help further meet the needs of coach developers.
Activity 5 Forum posting
Go to the course forum page and create a posting articulating your thoughts on one or both of the discussion threads below.
Your teaching repertoire
- How has your exploration of teaching in this session contributed to your understanding or connected with your existing coach developer practice?
Earlier sessions (relationships or power)
- How have aspects of Sessions 3 and 4 (see below) contributed to your understanding or connected with your coach developer role?
- In Session 3 you focused on learning relationships
- In Session 4 you focused on power and self-awareness.
There are very limited opportunities for the voice of UK-wide coach developers to be heard so this forum represents a valuable place for you to air the needs and opinions of coach developers. In particular, it will be interesting to capture your views and suggestions on the topics of teaching, relationships and power, for example what further training would be useful.
The two discussion threads also represent very important feedback mechanisms to improve this course so that it can becomes a key part of new – or existing – coach developers’ support and enhancement.
