Supporting Your Participants Through Solid Foundations
These are the corner stones on which we believe all those supporting activity should base their foundations upon. The follow opportunities have been developed with local and national partners to support our people to create safe, welcoming, and enjoyable environments for all participants.
Duty of Care
A brilliant way to start understanding what is needed to support people in physical active and sport is to enrol for free on UK Coaching's Duty to Care Toolkit and Digital Badge platform.
This toolkit will equip you with the knowledge and skills to provide great delivery experiences to others, as well as support you to begin to better look after yourself as someone leading or supporting activity.
Emergency First Aid in Sport
Our Emergency First Aid in Sport Course is aimed at those who are involved in physical and sporting activities who may need to administer basic first aid as part of their role. Courses we have currently available will be listed below.
Mental Health Awareness
Enrol on the UK Coaching Mental Health Awareness for Sport and Physical Activity+ to gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to better understand and support people living with mental health problems, and create a positive environment that ensures they enjoy the benefits of being active and keep coming back for more.
The Unconscious Bias online session aims to raise awareness that we all have biases. It is part of being human and was an important element in protecting us back in the cave days.
Today, however, as we have evolved, we should be able to recognise our biases, and therefore change our response to them. By doing this we will become more tolerant of and welcoming to difference.
Courses we have currently available will be listed below.
Coaching the person in front of you
The Coaching the Person in Front of You webinar will support you to be truly person-centred, putting participants' feelings, thoughts, ambitions and motivations at the heart of everything you do. Courses we have currently available will be listed below.
Safeguarding & Protecting Children - Safeguarding Adults
Our online Safeguarding & Protecting Children Workshop (delivered by UK Coaching) supports delivers to identify the foundations of safeguarding, good practice and child protection. Courses we have currently available will be listed below.
The Safeguarding Adults e learning module gives you the knowledge and confidence to safeguard adults at your sessions, including those identified as 'at risk'.
Current Courses & Workshops Available:
We believe the power of sharing experiences with unrepresented communities is vital to support everyone delivering physical activity and sport to become truly inclusive in their practise. Working with individuals and organisations across Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland we have created opportunities for people to develop their understanding of how to tackle inequalities and support the following:
- Ethnically Diverse Communities
- People With Disabilities and Additional Needs
- Women & Girls
- Older People and those living with long term health conditions
Whether you are an individual looking to develop your own practises or an organisation looking to engage with different communities local to you, please make contact directly with Luke Green (Workforce Development Officer to discuss how you can access these opportunities.
Case Study: Stride With Pride - Coming soon!
We have a fantastic range of local and national providers delivering a wealth of training and development across a broad range of topics. This section highlights who those providers are and how to access training beyond local opportunities.
