The Coaching Pathway team at Swim England recently nominated Jan to be included on a UK Coaching Development Programme.  Jan has worked through the Swim England Pathway and has been a coach at the National Event Camp for the past two seasons. The theme of the UK Coaching programme is Talent ID & Development and runs between 17th January 2022 – 28th March 2022.  

Coaches from a range of sports that are working with U21 Athletes have been selected for the course offering a broad range of experiences


UK Coaching will bring in world-leading voices in Talent ID research and the course participants will hear from coaches who have been involved in creating & implementing effective athlete development programmes.

The course is a brilliant chance for coaches across multiple sports to share insights and establish a rounded view of athletic potential at any age. They will explore specifically the talent development environment and how coaches can shape this to benefit their athletes and the wider talent pool.

Coaches from other sports will benefit from Jan’s wisdom from her years of study and an academic doctorate in Philosophy along with extensive experiences in coaching and nurturing athletes nationally.

It is an ideal course for Jan to learn and implement ideas into her role as the club's Pathway Manager, overseeing and developing the coaching programme from Novice swimmers upwards. 

The club is immensely proud to have coaches of such high regard and we would like to offer a huge well done to Jan on her selection this UK Coaching Course
