Becoming a Tutor

Becoming a coaching tutor

Basketball England and UKCC courses (link to page) can be delivered by anyone who is approved by us.  If you are tutoring any of the above courses, we recommend you have a look at the Tutor Code which gives you some guidelines on what will be expected of you.

To qualify as a Basketball England approved tutor, the current criteria is listed below.

  1. Level 3 Award in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (QCF) PTLLS or equivalent which proves competency in the delivery of short courses for sports
  2. Certificate/Award in Assessing Vocationally Related Achievement which provides an introduction to assessing performance in sports
  3. Attended an official England Basketball tutor training / orientation CPD day

In addition, potential tutors should be recommended by the Regional Management Committee in which you reside.

Coaches wishing to become tutors who do not have a teaching certificate will need to complete the above courses in order to deliver the L1 coaching award.
If you’re interested in becoming a coaching tutor and require more information contact us.

If you don’t think this route is for you, then there are other ways you can utilise a recognised centre. Sport Structures have the systems and processes in place to help organise a UKCC basketball course and all you will need to do is find a suitable venue.

For more information contact Becky McGrath at Sport Structures.

Becoming an officiating tutor

Becoming a tutor for one of our officials courses is a bit different to our coaching process.

If you’re interested in becoming a tutor for the officials qualifications, we require you to complete our Recognition of Prior Learning application form (RPL). Once it’s complete, send it back to us with your CV evidencing your previous training and education.

We will then decide whether you’re good to go straight away, or whether we give you the opportunity to have a little bit more training with us to make sure you’re ready to tutor.

Still interested? Download the application form, couple with your CV and send to our Officiating guru here at HQ.

We also suggest you familiarise yourself with our tutor code, which will explain what is expected of you as a tutor.
