ReTrain to Retain - Funded support, resources and training

UK Coaching in partnership with CIMSPA and EMDUK, has launched a new initiative ReTrain to Retain, funded by Sport England. ReTrain to Retain has been designed to support everyone working or volunteering in sport and physical activity in England. The scheme aims to provide skills, training, and targeted support for volunteer coaches, as well as sport and activity professionals who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. If you work with socially diverse communities, disabled people, or people with long-term health conditions you will be prioritised for additional support.

UK Coaching's Duty to Care Toolkit

We know how important it is to consider and care for the needs of everyone we coach, ensuring that they have a great experience in sport and physical activity. To help coaches, volunteers, instructors and leaders show your commitment to care, UK Coaching have launched a new toolkit that will equip you with the knowledge and skills to provide great coaching experiences for everyone – crucial both now, as you return to coaching following the relaxing of the COVID-19 restrictions – and in the future.

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.

As part of the toolkit, you can earn a free nationally recognised 'Digital Badge' to demonstrate to the public that you are committed to the principles of Duty to Care which underpin great coaching.
