Training and Development

We want to help you thrive as well in your second career as your first. And to manage the change from one to the other faultlessly. By taking the first step and seeing this as ‘necessary training’ we’ll give you all the support, encouragement, expertise and techniques you will have been used to from the top coaches.


We have over 250 training courses at various qualification levels to help you transition from sport to your next big challenge. We have full time, part time and online courses all designed to work around your routine, many of which can be funded externally.





Social media & presentation skills


As an athlete, your online presence can be key to securing work, representation, and awareness. But how do you market yourself? It may seem a strange question, but you will often be in a public forum (especially with social media) and you may be expected to speak and present based on your experiences, whether it be after a match, before an event or perhaps at a social event.  We can help develop your skills so you can react professionally and ensure personal success. click for support >




Future career pathways


What is life after sport? How do you identify your transferrable skills and put them to best use in your next career? We can tailor an individual plan for you that is based around your needs – anything from CV writing, interview skills, gaining new qualifications or simply where to find jobs of interest. Have you considered setting up your own business? The skills and experience you have could benefit others. We have experts in enterprise and start-ups that can guide and support you. click for support >
