Can anyone tell me what the industry standard is for the percentage of coaches that complete a coaching qualification? We started delivering 'coach education' in 2014 - 47% have completed their L2 course and 53% are still in the system; of the 53% - 90% are still within their 1yr time frame; so only 10% have fallen behind. Is this good, bad or average? Thanks
I was wondering why the people had not completed in the registration year. Pre course meeting or interviews should confirm training days and registration year adherence. Would you want a level 2 who could not plan there own time, to be responsible for planning athletes progress?
I know people that have started L2 coaching course and some have found course very difficult to complete due to life style commitments, work commitments or simply can't commit, i for one found that some of the courses I have done were too faraway to travel to and having children sometimes made it difficult and had to change. 2 years ago I started my L2 Basketball course and found it very difficult I felt I wasn't ready to take the practical exam so put it off until I felt ready. 9 months later i decided to take the exam and passed.
Unsure if this information helps.
I have coaching quals in 4 different sports and I consistently find people who:
None of that provides the benchmark requested in the original post, but I hope explains why people don't finish their quals (for the record, I finished all of mine!).
Thanks everyone for your replies. Rob does scUK have any official statistics that could be shared?
I can't provide any "industry standard" data, but in a recent conversation between a group of coach educators, a completion rate of just 25% was mentioned.
This was in relation to one specific programme for a single course, not a multi-centre, multi-tutor average. But one programme with 75% non-completion could seriously dent the average completion rate.
