On all promotional material you may describe yourself as a "BWSW Qualified Coach" or "BWSW Qualified Cable Operator" (as appropriate) - a term that can be an important draw for particpants and clubs. Once qualified, your BWSW membership card will be issued with all your current qualifications listed on the card.
Cutting Edge / On the Edge
As a qualified Coach/Operator, you will be able to deliver our very popular Cutting Edge and / or Progressive Edge programme at your club. Upon renewal, coaches and operators will be given a number of resources inc. Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards that they can use to help support their coaching sessions.
As a qualified coach/instructor/operator, you will receive £10 million professional indemnity cover for coaching on a voluntary basis within the BWSW network. This means that, you will be covered for any damages and legal costs arising out of third party loss, injury or damage.
Note, as a PAID coach/instructor/operator, you will need to check you are covered by your employer. For those who need their own insurance we recommend Sports Coach UK who offer professional indemnity insurance cover for paid coaches.
