Coaching Traineeship

Cuala CLG have developed a pilot Coaching Traineeship programme which will provide opportunities for trainee coaches to develop core coaching skills. The programme incorporates delivery of practical coaching sessions along with some class/online based activities – organised by trainee coaches under the supervision of the club’s Coaching Unit.  The programme will focus on delivering coaching to children between the ages of 6 – 12 years of age within a school setting.

This initial pilot will provide trainee coaches with the opportunity to develop the core coaching skills necessary to deliver a structured programme for children that is consistent with the ethos of the GAA and Cuala CLG, which will include:

  • effective communications & constructive feedback skills
  • planning, coordination and organising skills
  • self-reflection and self-evaluation skills
  • post session analysis and critiquing skills
  • skills to create a safe environment for children to learn
  • sourcing materials, documentation & ICT tools

Selection Process

All candidates must submit a completed application form. All applications will be screened and short listed for interview. Candidates selected for the pilot will receive a weekly allowance.

UPDATE:

APPLICATIONS FOR THE INITIAL PILOT ARE NOW CURRENTLY CLOSED – ANYONE THAT HAS NOT ALREADY SUBMITTED AN APPLICATION FORM SHOULD CONTACT THE COACHING DEVELOPMENT OFFICER DIRECTLY FOR UPDATES.
