There is a fantastic opportunity for female coaches from GreaterSport and Sport England. The aim of the coaching bursary is to increase the number of qualified female coaches in Greater Manchester. Before 31st March 2014 they aim to help 100 females in Greater Manchester achieve a coaching qualification in their chosen sport.
Females in Greater Manchester who are interested in completing a coaching qualification to enable themselves to work or volunteer at sports clubs as a coach are able to apply. To be eligible to access this bursary the sports club you coach at must be based in: Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford or Wigan.
The bursary is available for females to complete a sports qualification, recognised by a National Organisation of the sport, CPD courses and officiating courses. The bursary can fund up to 50% of the coaching course, up to a maximum of £200.
The closing date for applications is 14th March 2014. All successful applicants will be required to register on CoachWeb and undertake ten hours of volunteering once they have completed the coaching qualification. Successful applicants will also be required to complete an ‘End of Grant Form’ in order to evaluate the impact the coaching qualification has had on them as an individual, and their sports club.
