Northumberland Badminton association have been working closely with Badminton England to develop a new ‘Workforce Academy’ which aims to bring committed coaches, officials and volunteers together to learn from each other and provide a more structured approach to coaching and volunteering across the county. The Workforce Academy will provide support, training, mentoring and continuous professional development (CPD), in return for new coaches and volunteers delivering more badminton activity locally.
The Workforce Academy is now OPEN for applications anyone across Northumberland who is actively volunteering within badminton or would like to take the first step in their volunteering journey (this could be coaching, club committee volunteering, running tournaments, website design, sports journalism plus many other opportunities!).
If you’re interested in joining the Workforce Academy, please complete the Member Application Form in full and return to Holly Robson: firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 17th December 2019.
