What is the UKCC
The Netball UKCC is about supporting Our Great Game and making coaching better and therefore supporting our players of today and tomorrow. Netball Scotland, Welsh Netball and England Netball are all working together to develop an education programme to develop our coaches in all 3 countries.
The United Kingdom Coaching Certificate (UKCC) is a Government led strand of work that arose from the recommendations of the Coaching Task Force that reported in September 2002. 31 sports are involved in this UK wide initiative and are recognised in 3 phases. Netball is a phase two sport and has received funding from Sport England to develop the UKCC for Netball.

The UK Coaching Certificate is an endorsement of sports-specific coach education. It ensures that sports are delivering the best available, athlete centred coaching both in recreational, development and performance environments. It is a joint Netball development between England Netball, Welsh Netball and Netball Scotland. The UKCC will significantly change the shape and quality of coach education within and across Netball. In the future England Netball will be a formalised education provider of vocational qualifications that are appropriately developed, delivered, resourced, assessed and awarded.
England Netball is the lead agency within Netball for the UKCC. The Netball Associations of Wales (Welsh Netball) and Scotland (Netball Scotland) are equal partners in the developments.
In September 2004, Netball submitted successful Delivery Plans to each of the Home Country Sports Councils for funding to support the development of the Netball UKCC.
