Living Sport have a number of Coaching Bursaries that have helped coaches up skill and gain further qualifications. One recent success is Sandra King who used the bursary to gain her level 2 Boccia qualification to enable her to coach a performance athlete and go on to tutor Boccia courses. Read Sandra’s story
Living Sport are still offering coach bursaries to women and girls, those 50+ and to disabled people or those wanting to coach in disability sport. If you are successful in your application, we can offer to pay for 75% of the course or up to £100 if it is more expensive. The courses can be any of the following or their equivalent:
Activator / Coach Support Worker / Leader or UKCC Level 1/ Coaching Assistant
Our aim is to upskill more people within community coaching so we can see a vast array of people share their sporting experiences through coaching. As part of our strategic plan, women and girls, those 50+ and disability sport is high on our priorities therefore extra funding to help with courses is available.
If you are interested in receiving a bursary, please contact Joe Notarnicola firstname.lastname@example.org or 01487 849922
