Discipline Specific Training Prerequisites 


Before presenting for assessment, candidates must complete the Assessment Check In with their Home Nation Association to ensure they meet all of the prerequisites. 

Assessment Check In Service

Check In is a new process for coaches who are planning to attend a Coach Award Assessment course. 

It's free, quick and confirmation sent straight to your inbox*. This should then be shared with the assessor to confirm eligibility for assessment. 

The purpose of Check In is to confirm the coach holds all prerequisites, saving time on the day of the assessment, as the assessor doesn't need to check certificates and paperwork. 

Please do not try to check in unless you hold all prerequisites, including the completion of Coach Award eLearning module (unless you intend to submit your workbook and portfolio).  

Confirmation of Check In will not be issued until the conditions are met. 

Please click here to Check In Online

If you are unable to check in online, please download the Coach Award Check In Document  and send it to your Home Nation coaching office via post or email**.

*Note -  until our system is fully integrated, it is necessary for staff to manually check. Confirmation will normally be issued within 2 working days, providing the evidence is on record. 

**Note – if you are aware that your record is out of date (for example your First Aid has expired) we recommend you email the check-in form to us with a copy of updated certificates.

  • Assessment Discussion Task

For more information about the Coach Award assessment, please read the Assessment Day Pack
