Personal Development

Page Updated: 14th of March 2024

A qualification in coaching fencing  indicates the coach has undertaken formally assessed training. This would provide a guide on the competence the coach has demonstrated, and therefore what and where they can coach. Continuing Professional Development (CPD) complements qualification-based learning with semi formal and informal learning opportunities. These include short duration workshops and E-Learning, working with other coaches, mentoring, eLearning and reflective coaching.

The benefits of a CPD allows coaches to:

  • Focus on their specific training and development
  • Learn and develop at their pace
  • Adapt to change by constantly updating their skill sets
  • Be efficient by reflecting on their learning and highlighting gaps in their knowledge and experience
  • Recognise the opportunity to develop a breath of knowledge in a specific area, instead of a higher qualification
