Coaching and Leading

You’ve arrived here because you’re interested in coaching or instructing skiers. Snowsport England is the governing body for English skiers and snowboarders. We are recognised by organisations such as Sport England and The International Federation of Ski Instructors as the awarding body for coaching and teaching skiing and snowboarding.

We offer a range of courses; whether you’re working part time at a local snowsports centre or building a career working with the best skiers and riders in the world. This site deals with our alpine sking awards. We also offer awards in other snowsports disciplines such as snowboarding, freestyle, nordic and telemark.

We offer two separate licencing award pathways for coaches and instructors: development and performance




Coaches and instructors operating in this pathway work with recreational skiers, from complete beginners to expert. Holders of our highest level licence are also issued with an additional internationally recognised licence. Read more



Coaches in this pathway operate with competitive athletes, from skiers and snowboarders getting ready for their first event right up to training to be the best in the world. Read more
