Price increase on UKCC courses held until 1st August
Those considering studying for an ASA teaching or coaching qualification should act now to benefit from the current pricing structure, which will be held until 1st August 2010.
For the past three years, the Institute of Swimming (IoS) - as the premier provider of the ASA’s UK Coaching Certificate (UKCC) courses - has continually absorbed increases in the costs of delivering training, rather than pass them on to its valued customers. However, following a review it has become evident that in order to continue to provide courses of the highest quality, it is necessary to increase prices.
Therefore from 1st August 2010 the recommended retail price of Level 1 courses, currently £370, will increase to £395; Level 2 will go up from £650 to £680 and Level 3 course costs will increase by £100 to £1,900.
All candidates booking onto UKCC courses before 1st August 2010 will pay the current prices, regardless of when the course is due to start.
Emma Phipps, Performance and Standards Manager at the IoS, said “We review and evaluate our courses in terms of quality and value for money on an ongoing basis. Following feedback from candidates and key stakeholders we are pleased to say that we have been able to incorporate additional resources into the new course price.
“With effect from 1st August this year, all candidates on UKCC Level 1 and Level 2 courses will receive the ASA Swimming Teaching & Coaching textbook (at the appropriate level), along with the existing course resources. As well as an invaluable learning aid to enhance candidates’ knowledge, the textbook is a transferable resource that can also be used to enhance the delivery of teaching and coaching sessions.”
Candidates can continue to access a range of funding options for their studies, details of which are available here.
