Bridge The Gap: Calling Level 1 Coaches!

Are you a qualified BIS Level 1 coach?

BIS Level 1 Coaches can now upgrade to our new Assistant Coach qualification by attending our upcoming Bridge The Gap day and an online workshop on EDI and Skate UK Dispensational Model updates.

The Assistant Coach qualification will enable you to coach Skate UK sessions independently - and earn money for your work - on point of successful completion.

To upgrade to the new Assistant Coach qualification, you will need to be a fully qualified BIS Level 1 Coach (an alternative 'bridge the gap' process will be established for those currently working towards their Level 1 qualification, to be communicated shortly). You will then need to book your place on our Bridge the Gap day and an online workshop.

Please note: if you can't make these dates, additional Bridge The Gap sessions are provisionally scheduled to take place in October 2024 and February 2025.
