Applications open for new Surfing England Trainer Assessors

**This role is no longer open for applications**

Following the first stage roll out of our new Surf Instructor Award we are excited to now be able to open applications for further Trainer Assessors (TAs) to be contracted by Surfing England, joining the current TA group around the country.

This is an amazing opportunity for experienced surf coaches with a passion for coach development to join our team of Trainer Assessors and share their experience and knowledge bringing forward the next generation of surf coaches.

As part of our mission to help make surf coaching a more diverse and inclusive sector, we want to really encourage women and those from under-represented communities within surfing to apply.  We are also particularly interested in applicants from regions/areas where we currently have less coverage, including: West Cornwall, South Coast (Devon), South Coast, South East, Yorkshire, North East.


Following a major piece of research working with over 100 surf schools, coaches and assessors Surfing England have embarked on a mission to create the best coach development pathway in surfing.  You can read our 2021 report here

Following the review we committed to creating our surf coaching training and awards programme, starting with a Surf Instructor Award, which was piloted early 2023 and is now live having successfully certified the first cohort of new Surfing England accredited instructors.

It is vital we have the right people working as Trainer Assessors, as they are individually and collectively responsible for the consistent and high standard of training and assessment of surf coaching candidates.
