Coaching Beds and Luton has been set up as a ‘one stop shop’ for sports coaches delivering in Bedfordshire and Luton.
The first aim of the site is to bring all coaching news and information together in one place to make it easier for coaches to hear about the latest opportunities that may be available to support and develop their coaching. This may be information on training, employment, and funding opportunities, as well as more general coaching updates.
The second aim is to start understanding the coaching workforce which is operating in Beds and Luton. It is estimated that there are over one million sports coaches delivering across the UK. But how many coaches do you think coach on a weekly basis in this County? 200? 400? 2000? The honest answer is that we simply don't know! A key challenge for us is understanding who these coaches are and how they would like to be supported in the future, and it is hoped through registering on this site we will be able to capture some of this information. This in turn will help us to help you to be a quality coach.
This site is being developed and delivered by team BEDS&LUTON – the County Sports Partnership for Bedfordshire and Luton. Team BEDS&LUTON is a non for profit organization, which operates as a local network of Local Authorties, NGBs, Clubs, Schools and School Sport Partnerships, Primary Care Trusts and other local agencies who are all committed to working together to increase participation in sport and physical activity. Sports coaching is central to delivering that aim.
