Coaching Workshops

As all coaches know Continuous Professional Development (CPD), and lifelong learning is key if a coach is to become the best they can be in the environment they are working within. It is important for a coach to identify what their personal development needs are and then to follow up with CPD that is specific to this and to keep up to date with the modern trends. With this in mind we have put together some ideas of workshops on offer to you:

  • Sports Coach UK workshops - There is a comprehensive range of workshops available on offer to all coaches to access through Sports Coach UK. Examples include: Mentoring, Safeguarding,  
  • 1st Aid Courses - There are many providers of the 1st Aid course, here is the course offered by St Johns Ambulance
  • International Seminars/Courses - Volleyball England currently run 3 international courses per year and also there are a multitude of courses provided by volleyball International Governing Bodies (CEV/FIVB) shown on this page
  • Courses from your local County Sports Partnership (CSP) - there are a number of courses that are run near you which can be accessed through your CSP. Click on this link to select yours and find out more.
