Aims to increase the number of Secondary pupils exercising for 60 minutes, five times a week.

We are committed to increasing the number and quality of coaches, leaders and instructors in Wales by supporting them with improved access to education and training.

Coaches and leaders are very important to our strategy, Climbing Higher, and our targets for increasing participation in sport and physical activity.

Through 5x60 we are providing young people with opportunities to gain leadership qualifications. These can give them the confidence and skills to gain further qualifications and employment.

The Welsh Government invests £1.4m each year for the development of coaching through our Coaching Plan for Wales – 'More Coaches Better Coaches'.

UK Coaching Certificate

The Coaching Plan for Wales is supporting national governing bodies of sport in implementing the UK Coaching Certificate (UKCC). UKCC is a generic coaching qualification that provides coaches with transferable skills across sports and the UK.  

Our dedicated website, Coaching Wales, provides advice for new and existing coaches and leaders, and information on how to become a coach.
