National Coach Week begins today

Today marks the start of National Coach Week.

Now in its third year, the RHA-initiated event is intended to showcase the vital role coaches play in the country. The aim is to increase awareness of how important coaches are, the job they do and the career opportunities the sector offers.

RHA is inviting MPs and local politicians to recognise the industry and show their support for it, posting on social media, supporting events or by visiting their local coach operator. It has started the week at Grindles Coaches in Gloucestershire, where it met with Mark Harper, the operator’s local MP and Secretary of State for Transport.

The RHA is launching its ‘Manifesto for the Coach Industry’ in conjunction with National Coach Week, appealing to the governments of today and the future to recognise the contribution the industry makes.

RHA is showcasing events around the country on social media and I encouraging the industry to do the same by using the hashtag #NationalCoachWeek on any social media posts.

Professionals in the coach industry are being asked to record a 50 second vlog about what they do, with clips posted on X, LinkedIn or Facebook, including the hashtag #NationalCoachWeek.

  • The trade body has social media and campaign material for operators for the event here.
