You maybe one of 67 coaches listed on the England Netball database as having an old level 2 netball coaching qualification i.e. you achieved your level 2 status before the introduction of the UK Coaching Certificate. Unfortunately your qualification is no longer going to be recognised from April 2015 and therefore if you wish to keep your qualification valid you are going to need to convert your qualification to the UKCC.
England Netball has a level 2 conversion course that allows you to transfer your qualification to the new system without having to attend a full UKCC Level2 course. The conversion course is a 3 day course and costs £170, while the full UKCC Level2 course is a 5 day course and costs £360.
We are currently trying to identify if there is the demand to run a UKCC L2 conversion course at some point before 2015 in Hertfordshire and therefore we would greatly appreciate you dropping us a quick email to let us know which of the below statements applies to you:
1. You would like to attend a conversion course at some point before 2015 but have not yet found a suitable course.
2. You have already attended a UKCC course and updated your qualification.
3. You are currently an active netball coach but do not wish to attend a conversion workshop to update your qualification and plan to stop coaching by 2015.
4. You are no longer an active netball coach and have no interest in updating your qualification.
6. Other – please detail
Also, please note there is funding available from Hertfordshire County Netball Association to assist with coaching course costs as we are very keen to support our network of coaches in the county.

*Please note the conversion courses will be organised on a Regional basis and therefore you are advised not to wait for a course to become available in the county as there many not be a course held in your county*
