Coach Education

Scottish Fencing runs a programme of coach education courses for all levels of experience. For the complete beginner, we have courses which get you far enough to start your own school or community club right away! For more experienced coaches, we have a range of courses and qualifications which will help you take your coaching and your fencers to the next level.

If you have a SAFU coaching qualification or a coaching qualification from abroad the coach education programme now has the means to recognise prior learning. You can read the full details here.
