ETC Tutor Training 2019

1st & 2nd July 2019

10am – 5pm both days


Who is the training for?

Experienced tutors and trainers who use sport as a tool to engage young people and deliver training as part of their role. Active Schools, Sports Development, Youth Services, governing bodies, etc.


What will participants be able to deliver?

Following completion of the tutor training, participants will be able to deliver ETC courses to fellow staff, volunteers, and young leaders who deliver sport and physical activity to young people. The 6 ETC modules you will be able to deliver are SCQF-accredited at levels 4 and 5, and the tutor training will cover all aspects of SCQF delivery. The content of the 6 modules is designed to be flexible, and those completing the tutor training are free to adapt content to suit the needs of the groups they will deliver to. The six modules you will be able to deliver are:

  • Working with Young People in Sport – an introduction to understanding young people and the role of the coach
  • The Human Connection – developing awareness of the importance of building relationships and the ‘human connection’ as part of effective coaching
  • Planning Effective Physical Activity Programmes – utilising Kolb’s learning cycle to explore the benefits that can be delivered through sport and physical activity
  • Communication – building understanding around the use of communication in sport and its applications beyond
  • Goal Setting – building understanding around the process of setting goals in sports and how these skills can be transferred into everyday life
  • Conflict Resolution – providing coaches with practical tools for dealing with conflict, aggression and challenging behaviour in a sports setting

We are also able to offer follow up training for those that wish to deliver Dynamic Youth Awards in a sports setting, or our Standard Life – Step Up in Life employability and CV writing focussed module.
