Free Physical Activity Training
SOSCN is currently offering free Physical Activity training sessions to out of school care services. This training looks at barriers to physical activity, how these can be overcome and the importance of being active for supporting the healthy development of children.
Services attending will receive copies of the Active Club Pack and Set4Sport resources; both of which have been designed to be delivered with limited equipment and no prior knowledge or expertise in delivering physically activity. The trainer will support participants by talking them through the packs and demonstrating some of the activities.
SOSCN is now offering free physical activity training to single services from 2016. This allows rural or large urban out of school care services to benefit from the training on offer. Training content would be similar to larger training sessions and the recommended number of participants is preferably around 8-10 in order or participants to experience the full benefit of the games being demonstrated. Smaller participant numbers would be considered in rural areas. Please email Greig about this.
The training sessions were originally delivered to clusters of out of school care services: local networks, local forums or services with multiple sites and is targeting approximately 2 members of staff from each service, this can still be done. We are looking for services who are interested in receiving the training to get in touch with other local services to arrange a suitable venue, participants numbers (of no less than 10 and no more than 20 per session) and some potential dates.
The training will last for a total of 2 hours and will consist of a short information session followed by a practical workshop which will involve physical activity participation of moderate intensity. The venue therefore must be able to accommodate for this. Participants do not need any prior experience or skills and the activities are suitable for different ages and levels of fitness.
