National Recognition for Coaching Awards

1st4SportEndorsed

For some time now an aspiration of the BAB and the coaching team was to gain some form of national recognition for our coaching awards. A major step forward in the BAB coaching standard and quality has been achieved. I am pleased to announce that as of 1st May 2016 our coaching levels 1, 2 & 3 now carry endorsement from 1st4sport. Our coaching awards satisfied the 9 criteria for the award and was successful on the first submission of the required documentation which included the course content, tutor training, CPD, assessment criteria for the candidates and course review along with other supporting documentation. 1st4sport endorsement is unique in that it focuses on the recognition of high-quality educational solutions, developed by industry experts, which can be shown to be of value to holders of 1st4sport qualifications or for those preparing to complete their qualifications

How to take a BAB Coaching Course

  • The CL1 course can be taken with an Association or a BAB tutor
  • The CL2 and CL3 courses are taken with a BAB Tutor
  • The CL2 and CL3 course units are taken with either a BAB or scUK tutor

To apply for a coaching course add your details to the coaching application form on the BAB website or download a form and after it is signed by your CLO or head of Association send it to the BAB Coaching Administration Officer

New Associations

Instructors must take the BAB Coach Level 1 course (CL1) coaching award within the one year from the start of their probationary period. This is a mandatory requirement.

First Aid

First Aid is not a mandatory requirement. However, all Coaches carry a “Duty of Care” for all students under their supervision and the Board highly recommends that all Coaches have an externally validated HSE approved First Aid award. First Aid qualifications should be assessed, and candidates awarded a certificate of competence, not just a certificate of attendance.
