2019-2020 NSSU-ICCE Coach Developer Programme
Coach Developer Programme:
The NSSU Coach Developer Academy (NCDA) was established as part of the Japanese government project, ‘Sport for Tomorrow’. ‘Sport for Tomorrow’s’ central aim is to make an international contribution through sports. Driven by a vision of creating coaching cultures that lead to positive experiences for everyone through sport, the mission of NCDA is to foster future international coach development talent and a community of coach developers across the world. To do this NCDA helps current and future international coach developers to become more effective learning facilitators and program designers. Proudly partnering with the International Council for Coaching Excellence (ICCE), the programme offers a blended learning experience, including two one-week residentials at NSSU in Tokyo (compulsory), alongside e-learning and on-line support to help candidates to apply learning to professional practice.
We invite 12 practitioners working across the sporting contexts (national systems, coaching organizations, national and international sporting federations, and universities) to join our 2019–2020 programme and:
Become part of a global network of coach developers striving to enhance the quality of coaching at all levels
Develop your skills in facilitation, supporting coaches in the field, programme design and mentoring
Improve your coach education programmes, your coaches, and your coaching system
Run by the NSSU Coach Developer Academy (NCDA), the Coach Developer Programme offers a blended learning experience that is divided into two broad parts; the on-campus residential component and the remote component. The on-campus residential component consists of two one-week residentials at NSSU in Tokyo (both are compulsory) and include a mixture of workshops, seminars, discussion groups and practical work. The remote component consists of packages of E-modules and online support aimed at helping coach developers utilise and implement skills gained on and through the programme when working with real coaches back in their organizations.
