Active East Herts – Coaching Bursary

Active East Herts are opening applications to our Coaching Bursary in January 2020!

February 2020 is an important month in Hertfordshire as it features the Hertfordshire Year of Culture’s month of “Skills Development and Volunteering” alongside the Hertfordshire Sports Partnerships “Coach Education Week” (15th – 23rd Feb)!

To celebrate this and to ensure as many people in East Hertfordshire benefit from the amazing opportunities available to enhance their skills with a coaching course, we are opening applications for our coaching bursaries. From 8th January 2020 – Friday 31st January 2020 you can write to us to apply for a coaching bursary. 

We have a total of £750 available in coaching bursaries which will be awarded in the following pots:

One £250 pot

Two £150 pots 

Two £100 pots 

This funding can be used during the Coach Education Week (link to programme below) or on an external course from a registered body (must be approved by Active East Herts). 

The bigger pot of £250 should fully fund most courses with the smaller funds either fully supporting a first aid course for example, or it could be used to part fund a course with a club, school or independent coach supplying the rest of the course fee.
