UP-COMING COACHING COURSES & WORKSHOPS
Differences between Coaching Workshops & Coaching Courses:
• Coaching Courses (Level 1, 2 & 3) are a compulsory element to gain a formal coaching qualification. This is standardized by Volleyball Australia (VA) and delivered in cooperation with each State Volleyball organisations. After attending a course, you become a candidate for the relevant VA accreditation level and will gain the full qualification once all elements have been completed.
• Coaching Workshops work in parallel to a course and include theoretical and practical sessions aiming to provide additional education. Workshops are independently created and delivered by State Volleyball New South Wales as a professional development opportunity to create better coaches and show additional practical applications. After attending a workshop, you receive a Certificate of Attendance and the hours spent can contribute to your coaching Log Sheet which is a requirement to gain some of the formal coaching qualifications. Workshops are in line with national coaching courses, this program is aiming to give deeper practical and theoretical knowledge that will facilitate and benefit coaches who are building their own coaching career. Content is prepared in line with international standards and based on scientific, academic and practical knowledge.

RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING (RPL)
What is RPL?
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is the acknowledgment of skills and knowledge obtained through formal training, work experience and/ or life experience. RPL can often "speed-up" the process of becoming an accredited coach and avoid the problem of participants having to unnecessarily repeat learning experience.
Who can apply?
Applicants can apply for RPL if they think that their prior learning and experience enables them to provide evidence to show that they are already competent in the competencies of a particular training program or module.
