Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Taekwondo Qualification

This course is for Instructors who are planning their own sessions and delivering their classes without supervision.  This is not a course for Coaching Assistants/anyone working under supervision.

From August 2016 we only offer the Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Taekwondo Qualification Course. 1st4sport Qualifications is recognised as an awarding organisation by the UK regulators Ofqual, Qualification Wales, CCEA and SQA Accreditation.

1st4sport is a brand of Coachwise Limited, the trading arm of The National Coaching Foundation (known as sports coach UK), the UK-registered charity leading the national development of coaches and the coaching system.

The Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Taekwondo Qualification course provides you with an opportunity to study and be assessed for both practical and theoretical aspects of coaching Taekwondo. The course recognises your knowledge and experience of ‘doing’ Taekwondo and therefore focuses on the ‘how to teach’ elements of coaching as well as assessing your knowledge of competition.
