The 1st4sport Level 2 Award in Coaching Rowing Sessions is ideal for learners interested in becoming a rowing coach.

They will learn how to plan, deliver, and evaluate linked and progressive coaching sessions independently, although they may work as part of a larger coaching team.

They will also build a key understanding of the practical and theoretical aspects of planning, delivering, and evaluating rowing sessions.

This qualification is recognised as the industry standard Level 2 qualification for session coaches by UK Coaching and British Rowing. It is aligned to the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity professional standard for Coach.

Gives learners the knowledge, skills and confidence to plan, deliver and evaluate a series of linked and progressive rowing sessions

Qualification Progression

Learners could progress on to the 1st4sport Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Rowing. The skills and knowledge developed through this qualification may also be used to progress to other industry-relevant qualifications in coaching sport, activity leadership or sports development.

Successful learners are eligible to seek employment in appropriate paid or voluntary coaching roles. They should look to develop their learning and knowledge of Rowing by working with other, more experienced, coaches. Following a period of practice as a qualified coach, learners may choose to develop their skills by participating in continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities offered within Rowing and other coaching-related organisations.
