Developed in partnership with UK Coaching and other experts within the sector, the 1st4sport Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Multi-Skills Development in Sport will introduce learners to the principles of coaching fundamental movement skills and sport specific skills via the planning, delivery and review of a series of linked and progressive coaching sessions. A Level 2 Multi-Skills coach will be able to apply this knowledge to sport-specific coaching sessions or plan, deliver and review sessions purely linked to the development of fundamental movement skills (such as agility, balance and coordination) or sport-specific skills (such as jumping, throwing and catching).

Learners who achieve this qualification will:

  • become qualified to support children’s successful participation in sport
  • learn how to design, deliver and evaluate a linked and progressive series of multi-skills activity sessions
  • make a positive impact on the children they’re working with by developing their movement confidence and sport-related skills
  • help children master the fundamentals of movement in a fun, imaginative and progressive way
  • make sport more enjoyable for children and young people…and much more!

*Please note there may be exceptions to the above. Further information about the EQF can be found on the EQF Portal.
