We are honoured and humbled to have won the Transforming Coaching award at UK Coaching's annual showpiece.

By James Burbidge · 14th December 2021

On December 7th we were astounded, delighted and honoured to win UK Coaching’s prestigious Transforming Coaching award at a ceremony in Leeds, attended by some of the best and brightest in the sports & physical activity sector.

The Transforming Coaching award celebrates organisations that are transforming coaching to enhance the development and well-being of people providing and receiving great coaching. As an organisation built on partnership working, it’s not something we feel we can take sole credit for:

“We are incredibly privileged to collect this award on behalf of literally 200 other employers and partners who are making that change happen on our behalf”

Gary Laybourne, Coach Core CEO

Coach Core being recognised by UK Coaching in this way is a huge validation of the work we are doing and the efforts not just of the team here, but every employer, learning coach, mentor and partner that make up our programme consortiums around the country.

“This year we have been blown away by the commitment and ingenuity shown by each of our winners. Coaches are a powerful unifying force for good, and the amazing examples we have seen this year showcase why we are right to be so proud of the coaching workforce here in the UK. I would like to extend a personal congratulations to each of our winners – great coaching has always been about inspiring others, and the pandemic has made this more vital than ever. At a time where we have all needed motivation, that boost to carry on and be the best we can be, coaches have stepped up and rejuvenated their communities.”

UK Coaching CEO Mark Gannon
