The GB national Boxing Awards

Based in Southsea, Portsmouth and operating nationwide, Boxing Awards is the home of the GB Boxing Awards programme across the region. 

This course is an England Boxing accredited non-contact boxing programme. It is delivered over one day and recommended for teachers, youth workers, personal trainers, students and people of all abilities wanting to get on the boxing coaching ladder. This Boxing Awards course teaches all basic skills required to start coaching boxing and has no specific prerequisites. Previous experience in boxing is beneficial but not essential. However, a few boxing sessions in your local club prior to attending the course could help you settle in easily.

To provide you the best quality training, participants will be assessed throughout the course. A pass/fail grading system will be given on completion of the course. If you do fail for some unfortunate reason, you will be invited back to redo the course within the year for free. Get in touch with our Southsea professionals for more information. 

In schools

The boxing tutor course is ideal for students (14+) and teachers alike. Importantly, teachers who qualify are then authorised, registered and insured to deliver the Boxing Awards non-contact programme. The Boxing Awards can also be used to support ASDAN GCSEPE, BTEC, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and The Prince’s Trust Award.

School students who complete the course can be considered to assist the teacher in his/her delivery of the Boxing Awards Programme. This provides an innovative way of engaging students constructively in assisting both the teacher and their peer group. Any coaches with a Level 2 qualification in another sport who qualify after this course may freely deliver the Boxing Awards Programme in any setting.

Course fee

The cost of the course is £100, which covers the following course resources:
1 x Student booklet non-contact pack
1 x Boxing Tutor guide
1 x Coaching booklet non-contact (24 lesson plans)
1 x Boxing tutor DVD (fun and games and boxing drills)

What to do if you fail the Boxing Tutor Course?

If you fail the course, you may not immediately act as a boxing tutor. However, you may be graded as a ‘Conditional Pass’, which requires the student to carry out agreed work programmes in order to achieve a pass-mark before certification can take place. Following this, you may assume the role of a boxing tutor. Subsequent assessments for ‘Provisional Passes’ are carried out by locally appointed assessors or during other boxing tutor courses.
