Due to Covid-19 our process for Challenge Awards has temporarily changed. Please refer to our fact sheet for details and our update here.

Any Accredited Professional Coach or BHS Approved Centre are eligible to deliver the Challenge Awards; following a short introductory training session. These training sessions will provide you with all you need to know to get started.

Our training sessions are currently suspended. If you would like to be a Challenge Awards coach, please email to express your interest and we can get in touch with you when we can deliver training sessions.

Book a face-to-face session

Our face-to-face sessions are a full day of training with practical demonstrations and discussions. Will also count as CPD for the APC.

Our face to face training sessions are currently suspended. Please check back for events.
