Coach Educators Needed

The UK Ultimate coaching scheme is looking to recruit a handful of new coach educators to the support the delivery of our Foundation level courses (Leader Award and Sports Leader Award). UK Ultimate has recently been working with an organisation called the Youth Sport Trust and their corporate partners Matalan. As a result we are expecting a bump in the numbers of schools looking for foundation introductory courses, in the summer term around May and June.

UKU Coach Educators need to have obvious enthusiasm for both Ultimate and coaching as well as being a great representative of our sport. They must have a clear understanding of spirit of the game. A key component of these workshops is to introduce and discuss self-refereeing and its implications.

It is important for candidates to have experience coaching Ultimate with beginners and preferably (but not required) for young participants.

Naturally we are looking for individuals that have an ability to quickly build a rapport with people, and can communicate clearly and confidently. Experience of teaching, coaching, presenting (not necessarily in a sports-setting) will be helpful.

The nature of these workshops means that Coach Educators need to have a flexible working/studying situation where they able to deliver three hour workshops during the working week and/or, to a lesser extent, weekends. Access to a car is preferable, but not absolutely required if you are happy and able to travel via public transport.   

In particular we are looking for people based near the M1 and/or A1(m).  However we are still keen to recruit suitable candidates from other areas of the UK.

We are, of course, delighted to hear from people that want, or are able, to do this on a voluntary basis, but we normally expect to pay £60-£100 + travel costs for the delivery of these workshops.  We may also provide some support with equipment costs, but this will depend on the expected level of involvement.

Naturally the role will require people to have an enhanced CRB check done by UK Ultimate, as part of assessing their suitability of working with children and young people. This process also requires references and self disclosures. Having a criminal record does not bar a person from working with children and young people, it will check their relevant suitability for working in that environment.
