Introducing the Activity Grower Academy – innovative training to get more people active: redefining the workforce
Free introductory workshops
2pm – 4.30pm, 25th June
There is a strong focus across the UK on increasing levels of physical activity. This will mean reaching new audiences which, by definition, must include the inactive. The social benefits which are brought to communities by being physically active are wide-ranging and well documented. From health and wellbeing to educational attainment and social cohesion. However simply moving active people into new and different activities will not be enough to achieve these bold ambitions.
This free 2 ½ hour workshop will introduce participants to the principles and content of The Activity Grower Academy which will provide innovative training and support based on these principles for three key workforce audiences:
• Existing workforce: develop and encourage a new way of thinking and behaviour within the current workforce. Introducing a person-centred approach to getting inactive people active
• New providers: attract and support a new workforce who will come from outside the traditional sport and physical activity sector
• Social entrepreneurs: encourage potential social entrepreneurs to step forward and then train and support them
Participants will learn about the highlights of the programme and how it can help them get more people active.
