Let’s Start Coaching Bursary
We want to help the female coaching workforce to develop and support each other. Let’s Go Girls introduces the start of Let’s Get Together female coaching sessions, led by our female coaching SQUAD in your local area (soon to be launched).
Living Sport has now opened their first female only bursary fund – aiming to help more women and girls (16+) take their first steps into coaching. We will contribute 75% of your course fee or a maximum of £100 if it’s more expensive.
These sessions will include mini-workshops, catch ups and discussions about how you can improve your coaching and learn from others.
The Let’s Start Coaching bursary can fund any qualification up to a Level 1 coaching qualification, if you are interested in applying for bursaries for a Level 2 qualification please see our main coach bursary information here.
We have also established a Let’s Coach Girls Facebook group, a private environment where female coaches can share ideas, ask questions and get tips and tricks.
