dc.description.abstractCoach education is a single part within a complex process in which coaches learn about how to coach football in the most effective ways (Mallett, Trudel, Lyle & Rynne, 2009). With growing concerns over the provision of developing coaches this study aimed to examine the content of coach knowledge and skill, to examine the utility of coach education to meet coaches’ needs and, to identify ways in which coach education could be developed to better prepare coaches within the context of football. To do this the study used three focus groups of qualified coaches (n = 8), at various levels of qualification, to gain an insight into how the participants perceived coach education helped them prepare for coaching in the 'real world.' The results of this study found that coach education programmes only prepare coaches to a certain extent with a need to further develop the inclusion of informal learning opportunities into the formal process in order to better prepare coaches for real situation coaching. Participants also mentioned the need for additional modules, for example, a module to help cope with certain scenarios, which may make for a change in the session, licence restructure, so that coaches can become expert at one particular level, and alternative assessment procedures, which would give the assessors a better indication of the real standard a coach is at. These findings give coach education creators’ new information on how to structure their programmes in order to meet the needs of the coaches attending and to better prepare them to coach in the real world.en_GB
