The final report of the Coaching Task Force published by DCMS in July 2002, noted that governing bodies of sport—including athletics—find it difficult to maintain accurate and current records of their qualified coaches, irrespective of their employment status. DCMS has funded Sports Coach UK to commission a UK wide study of coaching across the 31 sports—including athletics—invited to participate in the National Coaching Certificate. The results are expected around Easter.
