Set up a course to help your organisation foster a love of archery

Instructors have a vital role to play in helping people new to archery learn and enjoy the sport. The Archery GB Instructor Award is the sports industry’s leading and most popular training course for archery.

We want to help organisations to develop confident and skilled instructors to teach archery. This guide is designed to provide your organisations with guidance to successfully arrange an Archery GB Instructor Award to be delivered at your venue.

You can arrange for the Archery GB Instructor Award to take place at your venue by following the steps below. Archery GB will support you at each stage and answer any questions you may have.

How to arrange an Archery GB Instructor Award course

  1. You will need to have 10-12 people in attendance to make the course viable. Identify how many people you would like to attend your course including those you already know are interested and how many you need to recruit.
  2. Check if your venue meets the facility requirements to host a course by referring to the Facility and Equipment section below. If you don't have a venue please contact instructor.award@archerygb.org for guidance.
  3. Check if you have the equipment needed for the course. If you haven't, this can be hired from Archery GB. Contact us to discuss your requirements and get a quote.
  4. Complete the course request form and return it to instructor.award@archerygb.org. If you select the course as 'open', Archery GB can help to promote your course on our website, to assist in filling the available places
  5. Archery GB will email you to confirm if the course can go ahead and agree with you on the associated costs. The cost of the course starts from £165 / learner.
  6. Archery GB will arrange for an Archery GB approved Tutor and Assessor to deliver the course, along with a Quality Assurer if required, and will also provide the associated Archery Instructor Handbook for each learner
  7. If the course is open, extra learners will be directed to your company to book onto the course
  8. The course is delivered by an Archery GB approved Tutor and Assessor.
  9. At the end of the course Archery GB will invoice your organisation the minimum course fee and issue a certificate and licence card to successful learners

Facility and equipment requirements

The aim of the course is to encourage ‘learning by doing’. The Archery GB Instructor Award is a practical course that can be delivered either using an indoor or outdoor range, alongside a study area where the tutor and learners can sit and talk in comfort. If the course is delivered outdoors, nearby access to shelter from the sun, wind and rain is needed. Each learner will receive an Archery Instructor Handbook at the start of the course. 

The course requires a range and study area to be available at all times during the course. These should be booked to allow appropriate set up and pack away time (e.g. 60 minutes before/after the course), and a member of staff at the venue should be available to assist. You need to check that your venue and equipment are suitable to be used for the Archery GB Instructor Award. If you are uncertain please contact Archery GB for further guidance.

If you would like to set up a course on behalf of your organisation, please contact an approved provider to discuss your requirements

Our approved providers are professional Coach Developers who are highly experienced at providing archery training courses.
