Find a Qualified Coach

All of the coaches listed on this page are trained and qualified UKCC (United Kingdom Coaching Certificate) Level 2 coaches, approved by the Scottish Federation for Coarse Angling (SFCA) and Licensed through the Angling Development Board of Scotland (ADBoS).  In order to obtain an ADBoS coach license coaches are PVG Scheme record checked through Disclosure Scotland, hold a current First Aid certificate, have current coaching insurance, have attended Continuous Professional Development through the Scottish Governing Bodies and maintain a record of their current coaching hours.

For your protection you should always ask any coach that you intend to use to show you his/her coach license as this is your safeguard that he/she is both current and competent to coach.

The Professional Anglers’ Association of Scotland (PAA Scotland) also hold a comprehensive list of qualified, insured and licensed coaches and can provide information and advice.  They can be contacted through their Facebook page and the SFCA also have a dedicated coaching page on Facebook which can be found by clicking the link below:
