Over the summer, our SSF Wellbeing Workshop (SSF WBW) offering has developed from working solely with young people, to now also working with partner organisations’ staff. These two strands are interlinked and reinforce our commitment to changing lives through sport, education, and partnership working.
We had more than 80 young participants attend workshops across three local authorities. Our first ever primary school sessions, at Riverbank Primary School in Glasgow, went extremely well; the P6 and 7 classes spoke openly and engaged in games and activities delivered at a key transition stage for them.
Having previously delivered workshops to On Route’s young people, we recently concluded training with their staff who will now provide wellbeing workshops and resources directly to them. In doing so, we are furthering the reach and impact of SSF while also helping young people better connect with On Route who can support them personally and professionally.
Education Through Cashback (ETC)
In September, the Education Through Cashback (ETC) team held an open ‘Human Connection and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)’ module delivery to upskill and increase the knowledge of practitioners who are working with young people in a sport and physical activity. The module focused on the importance of human connection and the relationship between ACEs and sport and physical activity.
The success of the open delivery has allowed the team to open two more ‘Human Connection and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)’ deliveries. Deliveries are fully funded for practitioners and coaches who want to gain knowledge and understanding of human connection and ACEs.
The modules will be delivered across two evenings:
24th (Part 1) and 25th (Part 2) October, 18:30pm – 20:30pm
16th (Part 1) and 17th (Part 2) November, 19:00 pm – 21:00pm
