 Snowsport  England is the body recognised by Sport England, the CCPR and  the International Federation of Snowsports   Instructors as the  awarding body for snowsports coaching within England.

 Many level 1 instructors work part time, some purely for the love of the sport, others for payment.

  The  level 1 award also provides younger instructors with  important  life skills which can be transferred to a number of other  areas.


 This award has three core components:

 The Level 1 training course, this is delivered at a local ski centre and takes a minimum of 2 days or 12 hours

  • Further  workplace training. This involves you  working with a mentor – a  more experienced instructor or coach to help  you to develop your skiing and coaching abilities.
  • The  Level 1 Assessment. This can take place at  your local ski centre. Some Level 1 Assessments are conducted one on one  at a time of  your choosing. Other candidates prefer to be assessed  together  with  a group of colleagues. You will be expected to show that  you  can  run a  safe coaching session and that your personal skiing is adequate.

 In  most circumstances candidates are expected to be 16  years of  age or older. However a young persons’ training    course     has been   developed for young people actively involved in skiing and sport.  These courses can be attended by candidates of    14-16 years of age. Candidates  are given a certificate to confirm  their  ‘trained’  status and can present themselves for assessment after they reach 16  years of age.


 To be licenced all coaches and instructors must also:


  • Be registered with Snowsport England
  • Hold an appropriate first aid certificate
  • Have completed a Criminal Record check, now known as a DBS check
  • Have attended a safeguarding children course
  • Every  three years you are required to attend an  appropriate course to refresh your award. In the case of the level 1  award that can be a one day refresher course or a level 2 training  course
