NQ Touch Offer Coach Development

NQ Touch are in a position where they can offer the services of some of the country's most experienced coaches - Sue Salter and Peter Shefford - to conduct coaching clinics for existing coaches.

The clinics are flexable in their delivery and can be done formally on a suitable weekend or informally before/after training sessions. Note that these clinics DO NOT replace actually having done a Level 1 Coach course in terms of accreditiation and the insurance cover that goes with it.
