ReTrain to ReTain: New funding available for coaches

As part of their Great Coaching Comeback campaign, UK Coaching in partnership with CIMSPA and EMDUK, has launched a new initiative ReTrain to ReTain, funded by Sport England.

The fully-funded scheme aims to provide skills, training, and targeted support for 25,000 volunteer coaches, as well as 25,000 sport and activity professionals, who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Support available for volunteer coaches

Are you a volunteer coach who lives in an area of economic deprivation or who supports under-represented groups?

You could benefit from UK Coaching providing eligible coaches with 12 months' access to online training courses and resources to help you develop your coaching skills and provide you with the minimum requirements to encourage and facilitate your smooth return to coaching.       

This includes fully-funded access to:

  • a subscription to UK Coaching Club (worth £24 per year)
  • Renewal: Safeguarding & Protecting Children (Digital Kids option) eLearning
  • Mental Health Awareness for Sport & Physical Activity+ eLearning
  • St John Ambulance First Aid Digital Refresher eLearning
