Workforce Education Programme

  • Play Sport

Welcome to the Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport's (LRS) new Workforce Development Programme, running from September 2017 - July 2018.

The aim of this programme is to develop a skilled, motivated and fit for purpose workforce (paid and voluntary) that is representative of our communities. Aiming to increase and retain the numbers actively deployed in the sector.

Who is it for?

Whether you are new to coaching or an experienced coach, an established club or just getting started, an Early Years Practitioner or just looking or awareness raising sessions (eg. Mental Health, Autism etc) then this brochure will provide you with details and information on workshops across Leicestershire, Leicester City & Rutland.

If you are coaching at any level, either in a paid or a voluntary capacity you will benefit from attending one or more of the UK Coaching workshops advertised. The Club Structures programme will support clubs who are seeking more players, more funds or better facilities and offer club volunteers a range of lively informative workshops designed to help clubs tackle these challenges.


As with previous years, Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport will again subsidise the cost of the courses, helping to ensure cost is not a barrier to attending.
