Instructors play a vital role in helping people new to archery learn and enjoy the sport. The Archery GB Instructor Award is an entry-level archery course which teaches you to deliver fun and safe introductory archery sessions for beginners.
The Archery GB Instructor Award is the industry’s leading training course for archery. The course is designed for learners with little or no prior experience of archery. To attend an Archery GB Instructor Award course, you must be at least 17 years old by the first day of the course. The course is held over two days and includes a practical assessment. When you pass your Instructors Awards course, you gain an Archery GB Instructor licence which lasts for three years. After three years you can renew your Instructors Award licence with us.
The licence does not provide you with insurance, so you will need to arrange this yourself or with the organisation you work with.
Your tutor will deliver the learning programme and cover the course syllabus over 2 days.
In order to gain your archery qualification and receive your Instructors Award certificate you need to be assessed as competent having completed the following activities:
Both activities will determine whether you’re competent or require additional support.
What should I bring to the course?
Bring some paper and pens to take notes, and your own lunch, snacks and refreshments.
What resources will I receive?
To help your development and to complete the course, you will receive the accompanying Archery Instructor Handbook.
What should I wear?
Sports clothing and trainers, along with warm/waterproof clothes if the course is outdoors.
The cost of attending the Archery GB Instructor Award course ranges from £180-230 per person, depending on location. You will need to cover your own travel (and accommodation, if applicable) costs as well, so factor these into the overall costs of the course.
