Coach Mentoring/Observation Sessions 

A positive and supportive evaluation, focusing on your coaching methods rather than technical knowledge, the sessions look at your strengths and personal training needs to assist with delivery. Mentoring sessions concentrate on increasing your awareness of the coaching process and include verbal and written feedback to enhance your performance and future personal development.
Gordon’s strengths in training come with the following experience and qualifications:

  • Teaching
  • Internal verifier Level 4
  • Level 3 certificate in tutoring sport
  • Level 3 certificate in assessment
  • SAQ diploma (Speed, Agility, and Quickness)
  • Community Sports Leader/Junior Sports Leader tutor
  • Sign Language Level 1
  • EDM SAQ early years development movement tutor

Gordon Fearn has provided a critical appraisal of the Nova  coaching staff. The coaches have received written and verbal feedback on coaching. I am pleased with the service provided by Gordon. The coaching staff are more aware of the coaching process and have areas to improve delivery. I feel this is an important service which will maintain and improve coaching practise by our staff,

Congratulations to Bill, who has recently been appointed as Head Coach of British Swimming

Gordon is a gifted coach and coach educator; in my experience his knowledge, enthusiasm and most importantly his expertise underpin his status as one of the very top coaches in the country.  If being a coach and coach educator is about helping to develop every individual based on their own specific needs then Gordon is more than equipped to do that – it’s very easy to say that’s what developing people is all about, it’s far harder to actually do, Gordon can. 


Anyone that has the privilege to work alongside Gordon will see someone who is totally committed to his own development and improvement, someone that strives every day to get better.  These qualities are exactly what Gordon demands of those people that he works, qualities which I believe every learner be they coach or athlete should seek out and utilise.”
