& Training


We believe that providing quality education and training is a core pillar of tackling widespread problems faced by society.  Our education and training combines youth work principles and sport to develop skills and knowledge.

Our learning is practical and interactive, facilitates personal development and can be delivered directly to young people, and practitioners.

The purpose of our training

Our Modules

An introduction to understanding young people and how they choose to participate in sport. This module introduces the concept of the role of the coach and the positive or negative impact they can have on the lives of young people engaged in sport or physical activity programmes.

We investigate Kolb’s Learning Cycle to explore the benefits that can be delivered through sport and physical activity and planning effective outcome-based programmes. Content should be designed to engage the participants while making progress towards programme outcomes.

Explore how to develop transferable communication skills through participation in sport. The module focuses on building understanding around how we use communication in sports, why these are important skills and how they can be transferred into everyday life.

Focuses on building understanding around the process of setting goals in sports and how these skills can be transferred into everyday life and developed through participation in sport.

This module provides participants with practical tools for dealing with conflict, aggression, and challenging behaviour in a sports setting.

Provides an opportunity to explore mental health and wellbeing within a sporting context and looks at how to create conversations around these topics.

Increase the knowledge of practitioners who are working with young people in a sport and physical activity environment on the importance of human connection and the relationship between ACEs and sport and physical activity.
