We have chosen to introduce this approach as we acknowledge that Coaches gain skills, knowledge and competency through a range of experiences, including practical coaching, formal training, informal workshops as well as work based training and we wish to acknowledge this first and foremost.
1. Should the assessment of RPL/RCC be successful, Coaches will be awarded Membership. You will not need to complete this process again next year, once passed, you need only to maintain currency, every 2-3 years (in line with Police Vetting) by demonstrating your ongoing learning, growth and development.
2. Should the assessment of RPL/RCC require more detail or information, the panel will contact you and ask for further evidence in advance of a decision.
3. Should there be insufficient evidence provided to award Membership, coaches will be notified of the areas which they require further development, and provided with a timeframe to obtain this for membership in the current year.
4. Should membership be declined, 50% of the application fee will be forfeited to cover administrative costs associated with processing the application by the panel, and feedback will be given around areas for further development.
Further information on the updating process to maintain membership beyond 2020 will be released in due time, however it will involve providing proof of a certain amount practical coaching hours, engagement in a range of approved development opportunities, formal education or training etc, which demonstrates ongoing learning, continual growth and development in line with our core beliefs about Coaching. This process will not be required until at least 2020.
