Workforce Education Programme

  • Play Sport

Welcome to the Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport's (LRS) new Workforce Development Programme, running from September 2016 - July 2017.

Whether you are new to coaching or an experienced coach, an established club or just getting started, our programme will provide you with details and information on workshops across Leicestershire, Leicester City and Rutland, aimed at helping you to improve your coaching and develop your club.

Who is it for?

If you are a coach operating at any level, either in a paid or voluntary capacity you will benefit from attending one or more of the Sports Coach UK courses advertised. The Club Matters courses 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. Some workshops offer a 'Buy 1 place; get a 2nd place FREE' – look out for the offer stamp!
