As the Coaching Department strives to support learning and development amongst instructors, coaches, leaders and guides, we have been busy working with the Technical Groups over the past twelve months to design and create a range of resources. These resources will enable individuals to recognise and celebrate their current practice, as well as consider options for further learning and development.
The Coach Self Analysis Tool enables an individual to gauge their current level of understanding, skill and knowledge in their discipline. This tool provides a personal overview of the coaches’ current practise, giving a holistic view as well as a specific breakdown in each of the areas. The analysis then offers considerations of how the coach may want to support their continual learning and development.
These considerations link to a range of resources within the NEW Digital Library, which includes academic papers, videos, podcasts, eLearning and much more! The Library will continue to grow and develop as new resources are made available and can also be used as a stand-alone resource for you to browse topics relevant to you.
The self analysis tool has the function to alert the individual if their results show that they could consider having their current knowledge and experience verified to allow direct access opportunities to a coaching assessment.
Once a coach completes the self-analysis tool, they have the option to download their results so the individual can share this with peers, coach developers and mentors, who can help in their development and offer further guidance and support.
The Coach Self Analysis Tool and Digital Library can be accessed on your desktop, phone or tablet.
