Supporting our Workforce to Deliver an Active Nation
Welcome to our Workforce Education Programme, running from September 2018 – July 2019. The aim of the programme is to develop a skilled, motivated and fit for purpose workforce (paid and voluntary) that is representative of our communities.
We are offering a range of workshops for those new to coaching or an experienced coach, an established club or just getting started, those wishing to promote physical activity and health & well-being within their settings, or just looking for awareness raising sessions then this programme will provide you with details and information on workshops across Leicestershire, Leicester City and Rutland.
