Our Courses & Workshops

We host a number of workshops, courses and events throughout the year which form our 'Developing People' offer. Our online booking system allows you to find, book and pay for places on our courses, workshops and events.

Developing people to create supportive environments

Welcome to our 'Developing People' offer, running from April 2021 - March 2022. The aim of the programme is to build a skilled, motivated, and fit for purpose group of people (paid and voluntary) that is representative of our communities.

We are offering a range of training opportunities for those new to supporting activity, through to experienced leaders.

Whether you are part of an established club, are only just getting started, are wishing to promote physical activity and health & wellbeing within your settings, or just looking for awareness raising sessions, then this programme will provide you with details and information on opportunities across Leicestershire, Leicester City and Rutland.

We have a philosophy of co-development and co-production, with the workshops being delivered by a variety of organisations on a range of topics.

Please take a look at our current list of courses and workshops on offer:
