(If you're a course provider, why not send us details of your courses? We'll list them with a link to your website/booking system. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Massive discounts available!
We have reached an agreement with Pro-Action that allows us to offer Hertfordshire clubs and coaches more than 50% off the price of both Safeguarding & Protecting Children and First Aid workshops! Clubs affiliated to Pro-Action will be able to send their members (including coaches) on Herts Sports Partnership's Safeguarding and First Aid workshops for just £10 and £20 respectively - the full price is normally £30 and £50.
Ever wondered what workshops you should be doing to develop your skills? Confused about what comes next? Well, you're not alone - but we found an example of how you could use sportscoachUK's workshops to build a CPD (continuous professional development) programme, either for yourself or for other coaches in your club, school, etc.
Click here to see a diagram showing one example of a CPD programme for coaches - it's not a model, and is only one way of progressing, but it might give you some ideas.
