The International Triathlon Union (ITU) and British Triathlon have signed a ‘Memorandum of Understanding’ to create a global Coach Education system designed to standardise and improve coaching education around the world, specifically targeting emerging triathlon National Federations (NF). The new ITU coaching pathway, supported by UK Sport, will be based on the ICCE’s International Sport Coaching Framework, a globally recognised framework for coaching system development. It will also draw on expertise from British Triathlon’s successful UK Coach Education Programmes and the UK Sport’s International Development team.
The ITU plans within this project to use the self-evaluation tool of the Quality Improvement in Coach Education Workgroup as a part of the endorsement process of their coach education systems for their national federations. It is intended that a national federation has to make this self-evaluation and discuss the results (potentials) with the ITU coach education system endorsement board.
