Sports Gateway staff continue to complete CPD online courses to ensure a better experience for our students
Staff at Sports Gateway completed the "Duty to Care" online CPD course this week!
What is the "Duty to Care" course?
The Duty to Care Toolkit is a series of Knowledge Checks and coach learning resources set across the five distinct pillars that represent the Duty to Care ethos: Safeguarding, Inclusion, Diversity, Well-being and Mental Health. Great coaching is beyond just the technical and tactical elements that make up the playing of a sport. It’s about the person-centred experience, ie a coach-participant relationship that is positive, motivational, caring and rewarding.
Educational Manager, Scott Corah said: "Not only is it significantly important to ensure we as coaches, teachers and other members of staff are current with our approach, but to recognise the importance of our day-to-day work and the support we provide is equally as important. The UK Coaching, ‘Duty to Care’ CPD looks at ways to support learners, but also support ourselves as members of staff.
After all, an 18-month period similar to what we have experienced has been tough, but subsequently, we are equipped for anything!
A moment to recognise that we are fantastic at what we do, and we want to continuously be better for the needs of our learners and ourselves".
