Preparation for The BHS Stage 2 Teach Award

The BHS has introduced a new career pathway for those aiming to gain coaching/teaching certificates.

What is the Teach award like?

Being prepared is half the victory

  • This is the only distance course available which explains what to teach, what to prepare & how to present it.
  • Finally, you will find out what to expect right here from Lingfield!
  • This course provides you with the details of exactly what to expect on assessment day and gives you the tools to achieve a good pass
  • Perfect for anyone preparing for professional exams
  • Lingfield also provide mini lecture/presentations which are useful for explaining to people at the yard how things should be done.  They cover things like safety. These mini lectures/talks might be aimed at Mums or volunteers who come regularly to help at the yard.  We provide you with information on how to plan and present your talk with ease.
  • If you aim to teach in future then this course will help you prepare lessons – give you ideas on how to approach various lessons – lead rein, group, private, jumping and more.
