New Workforce Education Programme Courses - 2018/19

Welcome to Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport's (LRS) Workforce Development Programme, running from September 2018 to July 2019. 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.

Who is it For?

Whether you are new to coaching or an experienced coach, an established club or just getting started, those wishing to promote physical activity within their settings eg. Early Years Practitioners, or just looking for awareness raising sessions (eg. Mental Health, Autism etc) then this brochure will provide you with details and information on workshops across Leicestershire, Leicester City and Rutland.

If you are a coach operating 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.

What's new this year? There will be courses running every month, here's the full schedule of the courses running - click on your interested course to find out full courses dates, location and further details:
