Why do I need to do this course?
The CCE course is a course that builds on previous learnings in the current Supervises course – an opportunity to upskill from an older course to a new modern course. For those that have done the Supervisors course, this course should be relatively easy to complete
Importantly, our practices needed to be reviewed, especially in the area of Athlete centred coaching approach and we hope that the CCE course addresses this.
The CCE course provides participants access our Community of Practice to network and to share explore new ideas in coaching. From an educational course perspective, this is a first for Gymnastics Australia and we will continue to utilise the Circles platform to assist build networking opportunities for coaches and mentors.
Probably the most important aspect of the course, it provides an insight into the Fundamental Gymnastics Coaching course, access to a range of resources in this space and we hope that it builds you mentoring skills to further support your junior coaches.
