Online Training Support in Sport & Physical Activity for Social Prescribers

London Sport have created and piloted a new training programme for London’s social prescribing network and, after learning from that experience, we are now in a position to roll the training out online.

How the session will run:

  • This one-day training programme has been split into two half-day sessions, users must be able to attend both sessions.
  • Day One: Wednesday 17 March, 10am-1pm
  • Day Two: Tuesday 23 March, 10am-1pm
  • One ticket purchase enables attendance at both days.

The session will seek to:

  • Upskill staff and volunteers working in social prescribing on sport and physical activity.
  • Help staff and volunteers to be more confident in advocating sport and physical activity to their clients.

Interested candidates should:

  • Be involved in the provision of an established social prescribing service, either as a link worker or social prescriber.

Wednesday 24 March
Sport and Physical Activity Workforce Network

The next Network event will take place on 24 March 2021 (11am-1pm) and will focus on volunteering. Volunteering is changing, with people from all backgrounds increasingly seeking alternative, more flexible and short-term ways to give their time.

As a sector which has a relatively traditional approach to volunteering, it’s important for those who recruit, support or manage volunteers in sport to understand what people are now looking for, and expecting, from their volunteering experience.

This session will consider some of the insights and learnings relating to sports volunteering, including the impact of covid-19, and will explore how volunteering in sport can develop to help ensure everyone can get a positive, meaningful and high quality experience when they give their time to the sector.

Senior Project Manager Jennie Arthur will also highlight Sport England’s recently published Volunteering Insight Guide which covers the dual benefit of volunteering, diversity, experience and volunteering in a modern world
