We worked in partnership with Age UK to support their ‘Get Active, Feel Great’ physical activity programme, supported by Morrisons and Sport England.
Working with Age UK, we identified that the Level 1 Award for Activators (multi-skills) would be a suitable solution to support volunteers delivering physical activity sessions within local Age UK’s. The learning programme was tailored to the needs of the volunteers and the environment which they were operating in. We sourced an appropriate workforce to deliver the courses, completed the relevant qualification and learner administration. Click here to see an example of the course delivered in Exeter.
In total, we delivered 9 courses in various locations ranging from Somerset to Darlington. Sarah Stott, Age UK Project Manager for Wellbeing said the following:
“It has been a pleasure working with Kath at Sport Structures over the last 18 months. We have had regular contact in relation to volunteer’s feedback, the course has been accustomed for the Age UK volunteers requirements. This has always been met with positivity and willingness to adapt the course where possible. The wish to get the course right for the volunteers has always superseded any other requirements, which we are very grateful for. We are now working with Sport Structures to develop a new course to support the development of physical activity sessions”.
