Workforce Development Continues With Online Course For Coaches

The Open University is developing a course to help those who coach the coaches.

Our goal of building a stronger workforce for the sport and physical activity sector is continuing with a new online Open University (OU) course.

Funded by a £38,500 award from us, The Open University is developing the free course to help those who train, mentor or develop the skills of sports coaches, officials, instructors and activity leaders.

Currently set for a July launch and to be hosted on The OU’s learning website, OpenLearn, ‘Coaching Others to Coach’ will give those who complete the course a ‘final digital badge’.

“It's excellent to have our sports expertise and work-related training recognised on a national level,” said Ben Oakley, OU professor of sports performance education.
