Dreamstore Academy is delighted that it’s new course which has been designed to meet all current standards, including UKCC, has been accredited through the Scottish Qualifications Authority.
Although it uses sports language and meets sports outcomes, Dreamstore Academy has developed the presentation and learning programme with the voluntary sector in mind, for those already working in education, youth and communty environments.
At the time of launch Dreamstore Academy’s Level 2 course in coaching angling is the most advanced coaching angling course in the UK. This course exceeds any existing Level 2 coaching qualification, uniquely offering a module on coaching and disability. The course is built on the available SQA sports coaching units, the outcomes of which have been matched to UKCC outcomes.
We are also delighted that Dreamstore Academy is a now registered SQA delivery centre, enabling us to deliver our courses anywhere. In preparation we have supported a team of people already engaged in coaching, across all angling disciplines and interests, to gain tutor and assessment qualifications meaning that we are ready to go with our first delivery.
The first full delivery of the Dreamstore Academy course will take place over three weekends in September and October, at three locations; Heriot Watt University, Dumbartonshire and Loch Leven.
