UK Coaching Certificates (UKCCs) are qualifications designed to raise the level of coaching skills throughout the UK in all sports.

Recognised by the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF), all three levels are endorsed by Sports Coach UK. They are designed for coaching only and do not recognise horse care or riding skills. In these areas, BHS qualifications remain the major qualifications, and when coupled with UKCCs show that those within the industry have the necessary all-round equestrian skills and knowledge.

The first three levels of UK Coaching Certificates are:

  • Level 1 Coaching Assistant (below PTT level)
  • Level 2 (PTT level)
  • Level 3 (Intermediate Teaching Test level).

Level 1

This is available as a stand-alone qualification for those requiring an endorsed qualification purely in coaching. The Level 1 Coaching Certificate is for coaches assisting a more senior coach and is at a basic level (below PTT) and not to be confused with the BHS Assistant Instructor, which will have a UKCC Level 2 endorsement.

At present, the BHS is reviewing its provision and delivery of the UKCC Level 1 qualification and dates for 2016 are hoped to be released June-July 2016.
