Pacific Volleyball Partnership Staff in Australia

-

Volleyball Australia is pleased to welcome coaches and managers from the Fiji and Vanuatu Volleyball Federation’s to Australia. The coaches and managers will stay in Melbourne and Adelaide for three weeks as the beneficiaries of the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade Australia Awards Fellowship program. These fellowships offer Volleyball Australia the opportunity to strengthen partnerships and links with their Pacific counterparts as well as increase the capacity of national volleyball federations in Fiji and Vanuatu to deliver their respective Pacific Volleyball Partnership activities.

The four community coaches based in Adelaide will complete a Level 1 Coaching Certificate, an inclusive sport workshop, basic project management training and practical event management experience. Similarly, two Pacific Volleyball Partnership program managers will participate in partnership brokering, project management, monitoring and evaluation and corporate sponsorship training in Melbourne.

All guests are thoroughly enjoying their time in Australia and making the most of the experience.

VA would like to especially acknowledge Volleyball SA and the Fiji Association of South Australia for their assistance in hosting the community coaching participants in Adelaide.

Laird ready to make up for lost time

Recognised Prior Learning (RPL)

All coaches must satisfy the competencies of each particular level of accreditation. However, some practising coaches may be able to satisfy some or all competencies required for a particular NCAS accreditation as a coach without having to attend a formal course or complete the prescribed officiating practice post-course. Individuals who wish to apply for RPL are welcome to do so. Please complete the relevant application form and submit it to Volleyball Australia, along with relevant evidence and a payment of $20 to cover RPL assessment. There are three outcomes of an application: no RPL, partial RPL or full RPL.

Coach's Code of Ethics

VA endorses the Australian Sports Commission's Code of Ethics for Coaches. All coaches wishing to be accredited must have read this code, agree to abide by this code and conduct themselves in accordance with this code when coaching volleyball and then complete and submit the Contract of Acceptance as a formal agreement to abide by the Code of Ethics. Coaches who are deemed to break this Code can have their accreditation withdrawn.

 

Accreditation Maintenance

All coach accreditations are valid for four years, at which time coaches must demonstrate they have been actively coaching over the four years of their accreditation to have their accreditation renewed. More details can be found here.
