Headline Objectives


A Framework for the Development of a local Coaching System Support Network across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight April 2010 - March 2012 Foreword Sports’ coaching is central to developing, sustaining and increasing participation in sport. It drives better performances and increased success as well as supporting key social and economic objectives thought the UK. At all levels of society, coaches guide improvement in technical, tactical, physical, mental and lifestyle skills, contributing to personal and social development. The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games present exciting challenges for sport in the UK. Coaching will play a pivotal role in the UK and home-country performances in order to be world-leading and, further to that, if we are to create a lasing UKwide legacy for sport and coaching. In response to this context, Governing Bodies, UK Sport, the Home Country Sports Councils, sports coach UK and other partners have developed the UK Coaching Framework: a 3-7-11 year action plan. The Framework has set the vision of ‘creating an ethical, inclusive, cohesive and valued coaching system, where children, players and athletes are supported by skilled coaches at all stages of their development and is number one in the world by 2016’. The UK Coaching Framework has been developed within a sporting landscape that is undergoing considerable change. The Home Country Sports Councils and UK Sport have placed increased emphasis on participant outcomes within their statements of strategy, including childhood participation; continued involvement in sport into adulthood; the development of talent and the achievement of high performance. The role of Governing Bodies in leading the development of their sport has been strongly affirmed as part of this change process. Within coaching, the lead role of Governing Bodies has been established, while recognising the need for complementary networks and quality assurance measures. Coaching therefore represents a ‘golden thread’ that runs through the programmes of investment and policy partners and is central to the successful delivery of the plans of Governing Bodies. Hampshire and the Isle of Wight has a strong tradition of sports participation from school sport, through to local clubs and up to elite level. This is underpinned by a workforce of voluntary and paid coaches who support participants of all ages and at a variety of levels. Sport Hampshire & IOW actively supports this workforce, working closely with coaches, clubs, schools, colleges, universities, local authorities and governing bodies with the aim of creating an active, highly-skilled and qualified local workforce.

Sport Hampshire & IOW is the lead agency in the development of a local Coaching System Support Network (CSSN). The group, made up of a variety of local partners including education, local authorities, private coaching providers and governing bodies, has been tasked with creating a coaching strategy and action plan for the benefit of Hampshire and Isle of Wight’s participants and coaches. [At this point there is an opportunity for any local statement about coaching and its impact. There may even be the opportunity for the Foreword to be completed by a coaching champion on the group or Chair of the local coaching group]

Glossary of Terms The definitions below have been established by sports coach UK in consultation with governing bodies, home countries sports councils and other key partners. UK Coaching Framework The blueprint for coaching in the UK that will act as a key reference point in the development of a world leading coaching system that is applicable within sports and Home Countries. The Framework includes the agreed vision, principles and outcomes, as a blueprint for stakeholders, to deliver fundamental changes in the UK Coaching System towards creating a worldleading coaching system.

Introduction The aim of this strategy is to coordinate the priorities identified through the National Governing Bodies of Sport, provide a picture of the current coaching landscape within Hampshire & the Isle of Wight, and identify priorities for delivery over the period April 2010 – March 2012. It is recognised that there are currently pockets of good practice being delivered locally. The challenge is for those responsible for leading the development of coaching to grow those pockets of good practice into a co-ordinated network that provides effective support for local coaches of all types and levels, and from all sports. The Sport Hampshire & IOW’s Club, Coach and Volunteer Development Group is collectively responsible for the successful development of coaching at a local level. Working in partnership with key local agencies, directed by national and regional policy, the group will lead, support and develop its coaching infrastructure. The Club, Coach and Volunteer Development Group will use this strategy document to promote coaching to ensure an effective allocation of available resources to support the development of Hampshire & the Isle of Wight’s Coaching System Support Network. This document will provide the high level objectives and priorities required to develop and implement a successful Coaching System Support Network, whilst the delivery mechanisms and resource implications will be clearly detailed in a local coaching action plan, which will be produced on an annual basis for the duration of the time period covered by this strategy.

Strategic Context The UK Coaching Framework provides the blueprint for developing the system that will take coaching in the UK forward towards the goal of being the best in the world by 2016. The Framework will ensure that both the development and delivery of the coaching system is relevant across the whole of the UK, taking into account the policies, strategies and priorities of the devolved administrations and the Home Country Sports Councils. The UK Coaching Framework will be implemented in three main phases. Following the completion of the ‘Building the Foundations’ phase the next stages are: o o

Delivering the Goals (2006-2012 - 7 years) Transforming the System (2006- 2016 -11 years)

Four key resource ‘pillars’ have been identified to underpin the UK Coaching System: 1 2

Capacity for the deployment and employment of coaches Capacity of Governing Bodies of Sport and other relevant organisations to design, deliver and quality assure inclusive coaching and coach education systems on a local, regional, national and UK-wide basis

3 4

Education and CPD of coaches Capacity and alignment of the funding, policy and support agencies

As the focus shifts towards front-line coaching and support for coaches, it is proposed that work at UK level, within Governing Bodies and within the emerging Coaching System Support Networks will seek to maximise the four identified resource pillars. An integral part of the success of the UK Coaching Framework is the development of complementary support networks at a local level. The development of these local Coaching System Support Networks must be managed in response to the requirements of local, regional and national partners. The local Coaching System Support Network must be driven by the needs of the National Governing Bodies and must be flexible enough to support the implementation of sport specific coaching systems at a local level to achieve the overall vision of the UK Coaching Framework. That vision being, to enhance the quality of coaching at all stages, and to provide active, skilled and qualified coaches to meet demand. This is the strategic context within which Hampshire and the Isle of Wight must effectively develop and implement an effective and sustainable Coaching System Support Network. At a local level the Coaching Development Manager has been employed to manage the development of the local coaching system support network within Hampshire and the Isle of Wight and it is the role of the Coaching Development Manager to understand the relationship between the identified components of the coaching system, as detailed in the UK Coaching Framework, and to ensure that the implementation of these components is contextualised into the local sporting landscape. There is a need to engage strongly with all key partners involved in coaching at a local level to ensure their ownership of the local coaching system support network. It is through this engagement and partnership working that the following strategy has been developed and formally agreed, and through which successful delivery will occur.

Vision – What we would like to see Create a cohesive, ethical, inclusive and valued coaching system at a local, where more appropriately skilled coaches are available to support children, players and athletes at all stages of their development in sport.

Mission – Why we exist Lead, develop and support the creation of a local Coaching System Support Network that is complementary to the work of National Governing Bodies, consistent with the policies and structures in England and that meets the needs of local partners, coaches and participants.

Guiding Principles The successful creation of effective Coaching System Support Networks will depend upon effective multi agency working. It is proposed that this multi-agency work be guided by the following principles: •

All work on the four Key resource pillars should be needs led

Need should be jointly agreed, with sport specific participant and coach development models providing a core reference point

Resources and programmes should be aligned to meet the identified need for the period 2009-2013 (Delivering the Goals)

Common monitoring, Key Performance Indicators and compliance processes should be agreed.

The ongoing engagement of key complementary partners at a national, regional and local level should continue as a key focus in the early part of the Delivering the Goals phase of the Framework, based on the principles outlined above, and taking into account the risks outlined below.

Risks A number of risks have been identified that may inhibit a strong focus on the resource pillars: •

Needs at a local, regional and national level are not collectively understood and therefore not met, coaches are deployed incoherently and inconsistently

Inconsistent and varied expectations and systems are placed on coaches which vary at local to UK levels

Training, Continuous Professional Development and support mechanisms are developed in an ad hoc, inconsistent way

Lack of connectivity, ineffective and inefficient use of resources

Headline Objectives To achieve our vision for coaching we have the following Headline Objectives: •

Support identified National Governing Bodies to implement sport specific coaching systems that allow them to deliver the quality and quantity of coaches required to meet their national objectives

Educate all key partners around the UK Coaching Framework to ensure a consistency in the understanding of what is meant by effective coaching systems and what they aim to deliver

Adhere to and embed national standards for coaching delivery

Establish effective governance and management systems that allow for the effective deployment of available coaching resources

Provide a local support network that is flexible enough to meet the needs of any level of coach, within any role working at a local level

Provide a local coaching system support network that enables any coach to reach their full potential

Key Deliverables In order to achieve our vision for coaching there are a number of key deliverables that must happen: • • • • • • • • •

Mapping of agencies that have a support role to play in coaching Identification of objectives and roles of partners within the Coaching System Support Network Application of the UK Coaching Framework to the coaching needs of National Governing Bodies and partners within the local Coaching System Support Networks Data Management System Core communications on coaching Coach employment / deployment and support systems Alignment of the programmes of the local Coaching System Support Network with the work of the National Governing Bodies Maximising the links between the school and community sectors in coaching Leverage of investment and other forms of support for coaches and coaching

Our Approach In order to produce a strategy that will allow us to develop an effective coaching system support network we needed to first understand exactly what is currently in place in the local area in relation to the key components of the system as outlined in the UK Coaching Framework. In order to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the current coaching system support network, a detailed gap analysis was carried out based against the 12 specific actions of the UK Coaching Framework.

Initial gap analysis The outcome of this gap analysis can be seen in Figure 1 below, Coaching Scorecard Report, with further information detailed in Appendix 1 – Summary of Maturity Matrix and Appendix 2 - Report Detailing Findings from Local Gap Analysis. This report examined the existence and effectiveness of existing coaching components utilized by partners and their ability to RECRUIT, DEVELOP and RETAIN an active and appropriate coaching workforce. The findings of this analysis combined with initial engagement of regional and national governing bodies, provide the basis for priorities identified within this strategy.

Initial Priorities from National Governing Body Engagement Process The vision, resource and capacity of National Governing Bodies varies greatly. Nowhere is this more evident than in their respective approaches to coaching and coach development. Nevertheless, whilst needs and priorities do vary, there are some common threads that allow local CSSNs to support workforce plans and devise solutions to reoccurring challenges. Feedback from initial engagement process with National Governing Bodies suggest there are a number of initial priorities and these were: 1. Establish better links between National Governing Bodies, Local Sports Development and education to ensure we maximize the deployment of resources from existing coaching programmes within Further and Higher Education. 2. Develop a clear and accurate picture of the size and quality of currently active coaching workforce in order to assess how well the local workforce supply is situated to meet the demand of children, athletes and players at all stages of their development. 3. Improve the vertical development of coaches i.e. moving from Level 1 to 2, Level 2 to 3 etc., by increasing the number of active, skilled and qualified coach educators and tutors at a local level. 4. Improve the horizontal development of coaches through formal, semi-formal and informal Continuing Professional Development by coordinating the resources of local partners and NGBs to ensure the provision of more holistic and needsled opportunities and delivery.. 5. Highlight opportunities to access new sources of funding and resource to support the development of high-quality, attractive and sustainable coaching opportunities i.e. more paid coaching opportunities. 6. Reduce the number of coaches undertaking qualifications and CPD which are inappropriate or unrelated to the type of coaching, settings and or participants they will be coaching. Educating coaches, deployers and managers on the merits of appropriate development (as they relate to points 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5) is a key priority for many National Governing Bodies. These by no represents a unilateral and comprehensive list of issues and the CSSN will be required to deal with sport-specific challenges as needs prevail. For example, many NGBs expressed concern in getting Level 1 coaches onto the coaching pathway and providing funding to support their development. The CSSN may well play a role in assisting clubs, coaches and governing bodies on a ah hoc basis, however, the scale of this work may fall outside the remit and scope of the CSSN’s immediate strategic priorities.

Given the size of the work involved in supporting the 46 Sport England priority sports, scUK have identified a number who have demonstrated their commitment to the UK Coaching Framework. Each sport’s readiness to engage with the CSSN in the ‘first wave’ will be determined jointly at a national and local level. Providing a strategic framework within which all governing bodies can operate, participate and benefit from is therefore a considerable challenge. However, a strategic and joined up approach is the only way to maximize resources, avoid duplication of effort and share best practice. Therefore the strategy recognises that some organisations and governing bodies require more support than others. Those with extensive resource will inevitably require a different level of support from the CSSN than those with limited infrastructure. Equally the strategy must reflect the changing landscape which exists in the lead up to the 2012 games and the prevailing political and economic conditions within the UK. The Hampshire and Isle of Wight CSSN must therefore utilize existing mechanisms to gather support for a unified and coordinated approach to coaching workforce development. Where existing mechanisms do not exist or prove inadequate, the CSSN must develop new tools and support systems to assist governing bodies in achieving their workforce goals, providing these goals meet the strategic parameters laid out by the UK Coaching Framework and the local CSSN strategic priorities.
