At a recent meeting of the West Midlands Executive Committee, it was agreed that changes would be made to the Coaching Course Subsidy for Level One and Level Two courses that start after November 1st 2018.
The subsidy will now be increased to 40% and will be paid in two halves. To claim the subsidy there are two forms that need to be completed by the applicant. Part one of which must be downloaded, completed, and then signed by the course tutor after attendance at the second session of the course. The applicant / club will then receive 20% of the course fee. The second form must be downloaded, completed, and then signed by the examiner when a further 20% will be paid.
Please be aware that the subsidy covers for the discounted membership course price and does not include membership.
