At The Four Front
We are pleased to recognise six Rugby League coaches who have graduated from our Level 4 programme: Steve McCormack, John Kear, Stuart Wilkinson, Andy Proctor, Dave Elliot and Dave Rotheram.
With thousands of coaches having gone through their Level 1 and 2 courses over the last few years alone, and almost 200 working towards or already at Level 3 – the minimum operating standard for coaches working in the professional game, the pinnacle of the coaching pathway is a two-year programme that leads to a Level 4 UK Coaching Certificate (UKCC) qualification and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Elite Coaching Practice from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).
Swinton coach McCormack said: 'To be involved was a massive honour for myself and something I felt very privledged to be part of.
‘The chance to work alongside elite coaches from Rugby League and other sports is something that doesn’t happen often and it has had a massive impact on the way I look at all aspects of coaching. The RFL coaching pathway is developing into one of the best pathways in UK sport. The Level 4 gave all the coaches involved a chance to enhance their own coaching philosophies and also gain an academic qualification at UCLan.
‘I believe that being involved in the coaching pathway will benefit myself, the coaches I work with and the players I coach. It has offered a great insight into not only the technical aspects of coaching but the theory needed for good practice,’ added McCormack.
