On Saturday the 26th of November, the ETC ‘Goal Setting’ module was delivered to Sports Leaders at the sportscotland ‘Lead To Succeed’ event at The University of Stirling. The event was held to celebrate 10 years of young people in leadership roles within sportscotland. It was great to be apart of an event focusing all on goal setting which young people could use in all aspects of their lives. To bring the ETC delivery alive, they invited four Olympic and Paralympic athletes for Q & A session. The young people loved asking Ross Murdoch, Melanie Woods, Lewis Stewart and Chris Bennett different questions about their goals and how they overcame different challenges or roadblocks. This complemented the training so well and brought to life all of the learnings from the ETC Goal Setting module.
The ETC team has also been out delivering modules to students at high schools across Scotland and supporting young people to gain SCQF accreditations. 15 Pupils from Lochgelly High School in Fife took part in the ‘Working with Young People in Sport’ module which will provide them with knowledge and skills they can utilise when they go out and work with young people in their community. Well done all!
Working in a multi-partnership with Scottish Cycling, Glasgow Life, and four secondary schools across Glasgow, SSF Wellbeing Workshops on ‘Motivation’ were delivered to 36 first year girls. Our sessions focused on what helps us all keep going and the role community, identity, and sport can play in this. A special mention to Roddy, St Paul’s High’s resident Australian Labradoodle, for his pawsome participation in their group’s workshop!
A shout out also goes to our initial group of new Wellbeing Ambassadors who began their learning in November with a full day of activities and discussion with our partner SAMH. We look forward to working with all of them further around mental wellbeing into 2023 and beyond!
