National Recognition for BAB Coaching Awards


National Recognition for Coaching Awards

For some time now an aspiration of the BAB and the coaching team was to gain some form of national recognition for our coaching awards. A major step forward in the BAB coaching standard and quality has been achieved.

I am pleased to announce that as of 1st May 2016 our coaching levels 1, 2 & 3 now carry endorsement from 1st4sport. Our coaching awards satisfied the 9 criteria for the award and was successful on the first submission of the required documentation which included the course content, tutor training, CPD, assessment criteria for the candidates and course review along with other supporting documentation.

1st4sport endorsement is unique in that it focuses on the recognition of high-quality educational solutions, developed by industry experts, which can be shown to be of value to holders of 1st4sport qualifications or for those preparing to complete their qualifications.
