UKCC Level 3


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

Recognised by the Qualifications 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 3 in England and Wales

The BHS is currently undertaking a review into the provision and delivery of the UKCC Level 3, future course dates are hoped to be released in June-July 2016.

Level 3 In Scotland (In conjunction with Horsescotland)

The course is the same as above, however, the course is only open to BHS Registered Instructors who already hold the BHS ITT.  Candidates will be registered with Horsescotland for this qualification.  

In order to process your application and registration with Horsescotland, applications for these courses must be recieved no later than six weeks prior to the first day of the course.
