British Dressage Coaching Certificate Information for British Dressage Members

 

What is BDCC?

The British Dressage Coaching Certificate (endorsed by UKCC) is a government recognised qualification which is accredited by 1st4sport that provides a recognised stamp of quality coaching across all sports around the UK. There are four levels with all sports requiring the same coaching skills at each level.

 

  • Level 1 Assistant…delivers aspects of sessions…direct supervision

 

  • Level 2 Basic, safe coach.  Can prepare for, deliver and review a progressive series of sessions. This is now a Dressage specific coaching qualification.

 

  • Level 3 Fully autonomous (independent) coach; role model at County/Regional level. Can plan, deliver, analyse and review annual programmes of rider development

 

  • Level 4 This is a Post Graduate Diploma run through the BEF. 

 

Level 1 is generic and as such British Dressage do not currently run this qualification.

Level 2 and 3 are discipline-specific, which for BD means you will be assessed coaching up to Elementary for Level 2 and Advanced Medium for Level 3.

 

What are the benefits of a BDCC dressage specific qualifcation?

UKCC has raised the profile of equestrian coaching by establishing best practice coaching standards. We now have a nationally recognised framework of qualifications for coach education developed by the UK’s most successful sports. The successful completion of a BDCC dressage specific qualification demonstrates that you have the technical knowledge and practical ability to coach riders to the level of the qualification gained.

British Dressage recognise this knowledge and the hard work that goes into completing a BDCC qualification and strive to continue to support our coaches, and develop their careers after the courses. Therefore any regional training up to Elementary must be taken by either a recognised or accredited coach. Any medium or advanced medium training can only be taken by an accredited coach. This is an excellent way to expose your coaching skills, and begin to develop your own client base.
