The IDP course from UKISA was developed from the ice skating and skiing instructor instructor qualification courses as there is a strong correlation in skills between these three sports. It is supported by high quality resources and taught by examiners with at least 10 years experience of delivering course content.
Instructor Development Programme Level 1 - Teach beginner to intermediate level skaters
Instructor Development Programme Level 2 - Teach intermediate to advanced level skaters
IDP1 is a largely practical course delivered mostly outdoors and designed to teach beginner level skaters. It is also the only course that qualifies skaters to teach the Earn Your Stripes kids skating programme.
We think opinions from previous courses attendees provide the best feedback
" My skating improved more in two days than it did in the past two years despite skating every week"
" The best advice I could give to someone planning on doing this course is learn the theory in the workbook in advance of the course weekend and work on advanced skills. Then use the weekend to concentrate on teaching skills"
" I must admit I was not a fan of the theory - it was too technical in my opinion. However, i did learn a lot of new teaching skills despite teaching skating at a skating club for over 10 years"
"Great fun. The teaching model used in the course can be used to teach pretty much any sport. I've used it to teach my nephew how to use his penny board!"
