UK Sport Coach Development Programmes

Swim England, in conjunction with Swim Wales, Scottish Swimming and British Swimming nominate coaches to coach development programmes run by UK Sport.

Coaching in High Performance Sport (CiHPS)

Currently, UK Sport are running a programme called CiHPS. This 12 month programme is aligned to the CIMPSA Coaching in High-Performance Sport professional standard and has a particular focus on supporting coaches’ learning & development, Many of the coaches accepted on to the programme have recently progressed to coaching within Podium environments.

The programme involves a combination of both online and in-person sessions, including workshops, cross-sport environment visits and a regular community of practice to provide a supportive social network. Coaches will also receive 1 to 1 support from a Coach Developer, many of whom have recently completed (or are currently participating in) the sister Supporting Coaching in High-Performance Sport programme (SCiHPS).
