The Coaching Pathway

Welcome to the Coach Education Framework - a step by step pathway that will guide you on your coaching journey. 

The diagram below is the National Coaching Framework, a pyramid set out by Gymnastics Australia. Coaches start on the pathway by completing a Beginner Coaching Accreditation and then progress through the pathway at their own pace.
