Apply for the BEF Youth Pathway Programme Today
Applications are now open for the BEF Youth Pathway Coaching Programme
Applications for the British Equestrian Federation (BEF) Youth Pathway Coaching Programme are now open.
The new 18 month programme, starting from January 2018 and supported with funding from Sport England, has been developed in collaboration with the Equestrian Olympic and Paralympic disciplines and is designed to develop coaches currently working within the Youth Pathways, to give them more insight into the holistic approach to athlete development which nurtures potential from a young age. Topics covered will include professional development, how to support and develop the young athlete’s personal identity and confidence, understanding the impact of environments and appropriate coaching strategies for the key cognitive and physical development stages.
Applications are invited from coaches within dressage, para-dressage, showjumping and eventing, who reside in England and hold a UKCC Level 3 qualification in their relevant discipline or are a listed British Eventing coach.
Applications open on Monday 2 October and will be accepted until 5.00 p.m. on Tuesday 31 October 2017, with interviews being held on 20 or 21 November 2017.
The selection criteria and application forms can be found here.
