Coaching education and certifications:
Coach DeveloperIn February 2020 I started working for the Confederation of Professional Golf (CPG), an umbrella organisation for national PGAs worldwide as Education Manager. I am helping to develop various projects in the golf education space.
Since May 2019 I am also the Director of Education for the PGA of Poland, managing the training of polish golf coaching workforce and lecturing at coaching courses.
I am deeply involved with the work of the Polish PGA as its Board Member, as well as the Polish Golf Union as vice-chair of the Board of Coaches.
Through the Polish Institute of Sport I became a certified ICCE (International Council for Coaching Excellence) Coach Developer.
Not having been able to find any quality CPD (education) around participation coaching (juniors, beginners, recreational players), I started ParticipationCoaching.com to share my learning journey in this area through a blog and a podcast.
