Look out for the industry seal of approval (IQF) on courses to ensure international recognition.
The IUSCA uses standardised course levels, rated on the International Qualification Framework (IQF), to ensure that stakeholders understand the requirements and competencies of suitably qualified individuals.
The International Qualifications Framework (IQF) is designed to provide understanding and transparency of the equivalent levels of education provided by different organisations. This is a standardised system that allows for the transfer of qualifications between different countries and governing bodies.
For further information regarding each IQF Level, please refer to the corresponding Table of Competencies, which details the level of understanding at each IQF stage.
Please note that IQF Level is indicative of the level of understanding and not the breadth of knowledge, which is usually classified by content hours or hours of guided learning.
This course really helped develop my confidence and coaching skills. You don't get a lot of practical experience like this at university, but this taught me so much.

It's great to have an international standard for courses and qualifications. This makes it easy for coaches to understand the level they are at, and where they want to be.

When recruiting, we look for candidates that have the right qualifications and show a keen interest in professional development. The IUSCA seal guarantees the standards we require.
I really became a better coach, and it was an incredible learning experience. I learnt more in 7 weeks than I have in 4 years of higher education!
