Free Coaching Support Group

Dear Colleagues

Tyne & Wear Sport is establishing a free support group for local coaching & activity providers based or delivering in Tyne & Wear.The aims of the support group are:

  • Informing providers about local funding opportunities.
  • Notify providers of any local, regional & national programmes they may be able to get involved with e.g. Sportivate.
  • Linking providers with local contacts to develop their organisation and coaching in Tyne & Wear (universities, local authorities, school sport, colleges, NGBs, Sports Coach UK, EFDS and many more.)
  • Offer opportunities to make the network of partners in Tyne & Wear aware of their services.
  • Raising the standards of coaching across Tyne & Wear.
  • Offer providers support around recruiting, inducting, developing & utilising their coaches effectively.
  • Signpost providers to relevant partners & organisations that can offer additional support.
  • Keep providers up to date with the latest local, regional & national policies.

The group will be led by its members and offer support for providers to continue their delivery of high quality coaching across Tyne & Wear. The meetings will be breakfast meetings, allowing providers to attend and minimise the impact on their coaching day.
