This prestigious award is the pinnacle of achievement in the Parkour Coaching industry and is a high-value kite-mark of excellence.

If you’ve successfully created a truly outstanding coaching culture in your gym or club you’ll be able to take your place as one of the industry’s finest performers alongside other high-performing parkour organisations.

How does the Coaching Quality Mark process work?

  • The ADAPT Quality Coaching Mark™ offers you and your leadership team the chance to evaluate the coaching practice and impact you are having in your gym.
  • When you register for this award you’ll be able to have a consultation with a Quality Coaching Mark™ Assessor to establish your areas of existing good practice, identify any areas that need to be developed, and answer any questions you may have.
  • You’ll then complete your action planning, implement it and start to produce a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate how each of the five AQCM Standards are being met.
  • As you work towards the Quality Coaching Mark™ you’ll have access to help and advice from the AQCM support team. Once you’ve submitted your portfolio the quality and effectiveness of your organisation’s coaching will be assessed by our panel of highly experienced Tutors. You’ll then be informed of the outcome or date of your assessor’s visit if any additional verification is needed.
  • You’ll also benefit from helpful feedback, practical advice and any recommended action steps to help your organisation make greater impact through coaching.
