Up and Running for mental health and wellbeing

Hambleton's Up and Running scheme consisted of an eight week running and social programme to people receiving secondary mental health care.

Event Group Coach - completing the qualification

The final element of the Event Group Coach qualification is the 'Integration Day', which provides coaches with an opportunity to discuss and debate their coaching ideas, technical observations and principals of planning. Essentially the Integration Day brings to life the theoretical content that is covered in the qualification's online modules. We have opportunities in the coming weeks for people to complete their integration days.

Throughout the winter, as well as development opportunities for existing coaches, there are many courses for you to start your journey into coaching.
