Coaching Pathways

Coaches, just like anglers, need the opportunity to develop within their profession in order to continue to improve their skills and knowledge, share best practice , become the best coach they can, and to achieve their personal goals.

The SFCA is working within the Angling Development Board of Scotland (ADBoS) to develop a developmental pathway for all coaches holding UKCC qualifications in Scotland, underpinned by a program of Continuous Professional Development (CPD).

Once this pathway has been finalised and endorsed by ADBoS and the three Scottish Governing Bodies (SGBs) it will be published in this section of the website.
