Badminton Wales Level 1 Advanced Award


The Badminton Wales Level 1 Advanced award is a new coaching award which will allow coaches to carry out stand-alone coaching within specified areas of activity within Wales.

The award takes two days, the first of which involves delivery by a tutor of three instructive CPD modules. These modules develop further key areas of UKCC Level 1 and provide coaches with essential knowledge which will better enable them to provide quality learning experiences to players. Day 2 consists of an assessment where candidates will be expected to demonstrate that they have achieved learning and are able to deliver sessions at BW Advanced Award level.

The three CPD modules consist of:

  • Footwork and movement skills
  • Feeding skills
  • Progressing technical practices

Candidates will have to be existing UKCC level 1 holders and will still need a UKCC level 2 qualification to be able to coach independently outwith Wales.
