The fully-funded scheme aims to provide skills, training and targeted support for 25,000 volunteer coaches, as well as 25,000 sport and activity professionals, who the COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted.

You could benefit from UK Coaching providing eligible coaches with 12 months' access to online training courses and recourses through the ReTrain to ReTain programme to help you develop your coaching skills and provide you with the minimum requirements to encourage and facilitate your smooth return to coaching.

This includes fully-funded access to:

  • a subscription to UK Coaching Club (worth £24 per year)
  • Renewal: Safeguarding & Protecting Children (Digital Kids option) eLearning
  • Mental Health Awareness for Sport & Physical Activity+ eLearning
  • St John Ambulance First Aid Digital Refresher eLearning
