The 1st4sport Level 1 Triathlon Coach is ideal for learners aspiring to build a career in triathlon coaching.
They will learn how to prepare a pre-planned or signed off session, deliver and review single triathlon coaching sessions, developing their understanding of the practical and theoretical aspects of this.
If your learners are over the age of 18, this qualification will also enable them to lead sessions independently.
They may be involved in the provision of coaching sessions with a ‘drop in’ approach, meeting the needs of people keen to participate on a more ad hoc basis.
This qualification sits within a progressive suite of triathlon coaching qualifications.
The qualification content is derived from the National Occupational Standards for Sports Coaching (2014) and the industry’s agreed common content for coaching. It is recognised by the British Triathlon Federation and UK Coaching.
The qualification will enable successful learners to progress on to the 1st4sport Level 2 Triathlon Coach. The skills and knowledge developed may also be used to enable learners to progress to other industry-relevant qualifications in coaching sport, physical activity, activity leadership, supporting PE in school sport and sports development.
The qualification sits within a suite of progressive coaching sport qualifications, and supports direct progression onto the 1st4sport Level 2 Triathlon Coach
