You Will:

  • learn about new participants’ needs, including how to build their self-confidence
  • increase your knowledge about how best to meet the needs of different participant groups, helping you to recruit and retain new participants to your sessions
  • find out about the ‘C’* system of coaching and learn how to include them in your coaching through the use of practical examples
  • be able to use relevant adapted planning material for both longer-term and session planning.

"I really enjoyed the course and the supporting resource is very good and helpful. I came away with plenty of practical ideas to implement in my sessions, which have made a big difference to the way I coach. As a result, the girls have been able to take more ownership and have felt more involved and engaged in the sessions. This has led to them having a more enjoyable experience, with their levels of enthusiasm and motivation increasing. Most importantly, though, they continue to participate."
