OCN NI Level 3 Diploma in Performance Coaching for Gaelic Sports
The OCN NI Level 3 Diploma in Performance Coaching for Gaelic Sports qualification has four mandatory units. Each Unit has a credit value of 10 building to 40 credits for the full qualification. Ulster GAA will offer a course to its volunteers/learners working towards this qualification.
The Ulster GAA’s Personal Development Programme (PDP) is designed to maximise the opportunity that volunteers have when working within their club environment. The potential exists to access the opportunities within the club environment and enhance their personal competencies and skills as well as their knowledge within coaching, club governance and club administration. Volunteers often receive a “pat on the back” for the work that they do; the ambition is to provide the chance to get credit for their voluntary work. If the volunteer/learner over time takes a number of units they can begin to build towards a specific qualification. Going forward there will be additional units and qualifications developed to give volunteers/learners a greater choice.
