‘A workforce to get Sussex active’ is a project focused on supporting physical activity providers in Newhaven Valley, Devonshire and Hailsham East to get more local residents physically active.
We asked all of the physical activity providers involved with the project what further training they would value most and two workshops stood out as being what most people wanted to do: Engaging Women & Girls and Inclusive Activity Programme. These workshops will take place in May and will be facilitated by experienced practitioners. All are welcome.
Engaging Women & Girls
Thursday 20 May 2021, 10:00 am to 1:00 pm
This online training workshop explains the sporting needs of young women and girls and defines the techniques for delivering successful sports programmes for young women. The workshop covers what works to both engage and retain female participants and includes case studies from projects that are successfully engaging females.
It will be delivered by Street Games and will equip participants with practical ideas on how to best engage women and girls in doorstep sport projects, sharing the latest insight from the Us Girls programme.
Inclusive Activity Programme
Thursday 27 May 2021, 10:00 am to 12:30 pm
This online training workshop (although it’s titled ‘programme’ it is a single workshop) will equip you with the confidence and skills to engage and support disabled people and people with long-term health conditions in physical activity. It will be delivered by UK Coaching and Activity Alliance and funded through Sport England’s National Lottery fund.
This project is not about income generation and we know that times continue (for all sorts of reasons) to be really hard right now. For that reason, we have decided to offer these training workshops free of charge and both workshops are being funded from the project’s limited training budget. All we are asking is that you make a deposit of £20 per workshop when booking your place which we will refund to you following your participation.
