Introduction

Each and every Pony Club Coach is required to attend at least one Coaching Course (CPD) every two years. This may be at Branch, Area, Regional or National Level. The course must be listed on our approved CPD calendar. 

Guidelines for Branches/Centres Running a CPD Course

The following is to be followed for the provision of CPD (continuing professional development) events:

  • CPD events can be run by an Area, Branch, Centre or centrally from the Pony Club office (e.g. coach conference)
  • CPD must be a minimum of 2.5hrs
  • All events being organised should be approved by the Area Representative before being notified to the Pony Club office
  • The Area Representative is responsible for the selection of an appropriately trained and experienced coach to present the CPD course
  • All CPD must be listed on the main Pony Club website a minimum of 3 weeks prior to the event in order to count for accreditation purposes.
  • The bookings should all be made via the organiser (so if organised by a Branch via their nominated representative).
  • The sign-in sheet should be sent to the Pony Club office so that the coach record can be updated (a copy may be kept locally/sent to Area Representative)
  • Some Coach specific CPD organised by other BEF Member Body central offices, may count but it still must be listed a minimum of 3 weeks before. If the event you would like to attend is not listed please contact the office. Please do not assume a course will be able to count.
