Online Development Opportunities
If you represent a leisure, fitness or sport organisation that would like to provide ReActivate training for your staff and teams, you can register your interest here…
ReActivate is a new, free online training platform, designed to equip anyone working or volunteering in the sport and physical activity sector in England with the knowledge and skills you need to confidently return to work or restart your coaching activity, as we emerge from the coronavirus lockdown.
Funded by Sport England and created by CIMSPA in conjunction with a group of partners led by Future Active Workforce CIC, ReActivate provides online training that brings government and industry guidance to life in an easily digestible format, giving anyone who needs it the ability to return to their sport and physical activity roles with confidence.
UK Coaching can support you online and help you use your downtime effectively to get ready for the future so that when things return to normal you will be stronger for the experience.
