Why is the nccp changing l.jpg

Why is the NCCP changing?

An evaluation of the nccp l.jpg

An Evaluation of the NCCP

  • In 1995-96, a thorough evaluation of the NCCP was undertaken by the National Coaching Certification Council to examine the effectiveness of the NCCP and to suggest improvements to the program.

Recommendations for the nccp l.jpg

Recommendations for the NCCP

  • Focus needs to be more on coaching abilities rather than on information

  • Courses need to offer more opportunities to apply concepts

  • A better balance between teaching the « art » and « science » of coaching is required

Recommendations for the nccp6 l.jpg

Recommendations for the NCCP

  • be more flexible & relevant - reflect differences between sports and different types of coaches within each sport

  • be more accessible

  • be based on abilities required to coach in a given environment (community to high performance) in order to meet the needs of the participants

  • recognize prior abilities and education

An evaluation of the nccp7 l.jpg

An Evaluation of the NCCP

  • The transition of the NCCP toward a competency-based education and training program was initiated in response to the recommendations that emerged from the evaluation.

Key improvements l.jpg

NCCP in 1996

Structure the same for all sports

Education and certification organized by level

Education and certification based on generic content topics

NCCP in 2005 +

Structure adapted to each sport

Education and certification organized by type of coach

Training and certification based on outcomes that are sport-specific

Key Improvements

Key improvements9 l.jpg

NCCP in 1996

Education = certification

Limited recognition of prior abilities, experience and education

NCCP in 2005 +

Education = education

Certification = proven abilities that are evaluated

Coaches can be evaluated without mandatory education if appropriate

Key Improvements

Key improvements10 l.jpg

NCCP in 1996

No real fit for community coaches (entry point too demanding in course hours and content – theory 13.5 hrs plus technical plus practical)

Content areas are presented separately, coaches are expected to integrate them

NCCP in 2005 +

Community coaches identified as a key type of coach for some sports, training tailored to their needs (8-10hrs, sport-specific)

Using a problem-solving approach, coaches are trained to integrate new concepts/content in a way that is relevant to their situation

Key Improvements

Key improvements11 l.jpg

NCCP in 1996

Values and ethics are covered as general concepts

Only way to learn more is to go to next level up

NCCP in 2005 +

Coaches work with the Code of Ethics and a decision-making framework to discuss ethical situations common in their coaching context

PD in each coaching context is available

Key Improvements

Key improvements12 l.jpg

NCCP in 1996

Coaches educated using specific examples and assignments that at times didn’t reflect the environment and/or participants they were working with.

NCCP in 2005+

Coaches trained and evaluated based upon the specific context they are working in to ensure relevancy.

Key Improvements

  • Train facilitators and evaluators

  • Submit for Approval Process

In summary changes will result in l.jpg

In summary, changes will result in…
