The Development Coach Award is for independent autonomous coaches who want to prepare for, and deliver a structured progression in ‘Climber Centred Coaching’ over a series of coaching sessions.

The skills of the Foundation Coach will be developed to a more sophisticated level, to match their delivery to the needs of developing climbers within a group. Often working with Foundation Coaches, the Development Coach will take a mentoring role, and lead in the review process to promote reflective coaching practice.
