The Academy is committed to and recognised as a leading centre of excellence for coach education in London. We currently have an extensive number of education and training opportunities and are actively developing further programmes with the Academy's external partners to develop a wide ranging portfolio of courses. As well as generic and specific courses, we are flexible and can design and tailor a programme to meet the specific needs of a group of coaches on request.
