England Boxing has introduced standards for coaching in schools and a registration scheme for coaches that wish to coach in schools. All coaches that wish to coach in schools should register with England Boxing. Once coaches have registered England Boxing will be able to provide interested schools with details of local coaches that meet the necessary standards, and will be able to advise registered schools’ coaches of relevant developments and opportunities regarding boxing in schools.
The standards will ensure that coaches of amateur boxing in schools meet standards that are commonplace amongst many sports and that are increasingly expected within schools. They will also reduce unaccredited delivery within schools by deliverers whose sessions do not meet the standards of quality needed to successfully promote and develop the sport.
Coaches may register if they do not currently meet the standards but they must demonstrate a commitment to achieving the necessary standards as soon as possible. By 2011 all coaches coaching Olympic-style non-contact boxing in schools are expected to meet these standards.

Standards for coaching in schools (updated August 2014)
All coaches that are interested in coaching in schools should first register. For more information contact Ron Tulley at England Boxing on 07515 333044.
Registered England Boxing coaches
Schools and colleges wishing to work with registered England Boxing coaches should ensure the coach is in possession of an up-to-date coaching card.
An example of this card is given below. Cards are only issued to coaches with up-to-date coaching and first aid qualifications and have Disclosure Barring Service clearance.
Only coaches carrying this card are registered and insured by England Boxing.
Please note that the below example is for the 2012/13 season and current registered coaches should hold a card for 2014/15
A copy of a coaching certificate is not sufficient evidence that the coach is registered or that his or her qualifications are valid.
