Free workforce training with StreetGames

In response to meeting priorities around engaging inactive young people in sport and physical activity, Active Norfolk in partnership with StreetGames UK are pleased to announce a second workforce education programme for 2019.

Having recognised the importance of developing a workforce to meet local priorities we have fully funded these courses and are offering them FREE of charge to attendees. These courses would normally cost £60 per person so we would advise anyone looking to take up this great offer to book early to avoid disappointment.

The programme will see a mixture of workshops, coaching courses and resources offered to help develop a workforce in Norfolk that is ready to deliver and respond to the varying needs and demands of young people in local communities that they serve.

We are pleased again to be working in partnership with StreetGames who have won a number of awards including the Training Provider of the Year at the prestigious Active Training Awards.

We are therefore delighted to be able to collaborate with them on this programme and bring their high quality, high impact and innovative training provision to the county again which provides a fantastic opportunity for all those wishing to attend.

We would like to invite youth and community workers, coaches, volunteers and carefully identified young people (16+) to attend the sessions especially if they are involved in or would like to start delivering sport / physical activity to disengaged young people.
