David Jenkins
What I would highlight This is the highest level of qualification available to Martial Arts and Combat Splrts Instructors and Coaches in the UK. I've just found out (on the first tutorial day) that successful assessment of various units is enough to AUTOMATICALLY PASS up to EIGHT different NVQs, including Personal Training, Leisure Management and Coaching, as well as qualifying you to teach the KeyStage Skills kids now learn in school. Amazing!

Course programme

Martial Arts Training Ltd (MAT) is the sole provider of the only specifically designed course for the whole of the martial arts community.  The BTEC level 3 Advanced Diploma in Martial Arts Instruction and Club Coaching is fully accredited by Edexcel and is the only style and association neutral course available in the UK.  The aim of MAT is to provide unparallel training to the martial arts sector.

The course consists of 14 sector specific units; the following are included within the course:

The Protection of Children Child and Vulnerable Groups

Referee Duties and Responsibilities

Enrolment upon the course can be achieved at one of three levels:

Award          90 Learning hours

Certificate    180 Learning hours

Diploma       300 Learning hours

Each entry level is priced according to the learning hours, but full certification of the Diploma award will only be granted upon the successful completion of the full 300 learning hours.

The units are designed to be taught individually but contain material which cross references between the learning outcome, this allows the units to be taught in conjunction with the learning outcomes from associated units.  Each unit is specifically structured to meet the requirements of the martial arts and combat sports environment regardless of style, system or association.  The course content has been assessed to ensure that the information provided is up to date with legislation and current practices.

All units are tutor driven and will require the learner to engage in individual, small and large group activities.  Learners will also be required to develop their computer literacy skills and will be provided with multiple opportunities to work towards Key Skill stages and additional qualifications.

At no time will MAT deny access or enrolment in the course due to a person’s association or style.  The course will benefit all experience levels from beginner to senior instructors and coaches.  For senior instructors the potential to enrol upon the course for experiential learning will be assessed on an individual basis, where this is endorsed by MAT the individual will be informed of the requirements and their responsibilities.
