The Level 2 coach often works alone or co-ordinating a small coaching team, usually within a club or a small cluster of clubs. A Level 2 coach can focus on a series of coaching sessions, often working towards a particular event. They understand about progressing skills from one session to the next, using different areas and refinements to make each session useful to a range of participants.
A Level 2 coach might mentor someone working towards a L1 qualification.
Level 2 coaches are qualified to coach on type C areas and can undertake a short workshop on “Coaching Safely in Remote Areas” to allow them to coach in areas which would otherwise require a Level 3 qualification.
The Level 2 course involves some independent learning and practical tasks before and after the tuition element, formative assessment during the face-to-face element, some logged experience (with mentor) and the final assessment when all other tasks have been completed.
- Recent evidence of competence at TD5 usually in the form of competition result.
- UKCC/SQCO Level 1 orienteering coach qualification or equivalent, or completion of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) for approved candidates
- Current member of British Orienteering
