Following the successful completion of last year’s Diploma Course in Team Management this qualification is being offered at the request of coaches who want to make the transition from coach to manager. It recognises that coaching and managing have significant similarities but it also recognises that they are different. The series of workshops will take the coach/manager through a programme that will help explore the critical managerial areas to help develop understanding, competencies and abilities to apply critical thinking, problem solving and decision making skills.
This interactive programme is being delivered by GAA and accredited by OCN NI. This programme provides the basis to build further qualifications that are currently being delivered to volunteers. See table below:
