Coaching roles and volunteering opportunities

Want to help inspire your local community to get active..?

Coaching

To get more people, more active, more often, it’s essential we support coaches in Slough to enhance their skills and be advocates for sport in the local area. We are dedicated to offering coaches targeted opportunities to improve the quality of delivery across our Active Slough programme.

We work closely with local partners, National Governing Bodies of Sport and Sports Coach UK to develop Slough's coaching workforce, running a number of qualifications, workshops and training opportunities. Click here for a full list of what is coming up in 2017.

We can provide coaching bursaries, enabling you to access a training qualification at little or no cost in return for community hours contributed to the Active Slough programme.

Coaching recruitment sessions

Due to the increased demand for more varied physical activity and sports programmes from our communities, Active Slough is now recruiting new coaches to support this delivery. We are on the search for qualified coaches and also have opportunities for Slough residents to gain coaching qualifications and support the delivery of the council's Active Slough programme.

Below are dates of recruitment sessions:

  • Langley Library, Saturday 9 February 2019, 11am-3pm
  • The Curve, Saturday 16 February 2019, 11am-3pm.

Volunteering

Active Slough are always on the look out for volunteers, activators and leaders. You don’t need to be a sporting superstar or fitness guru, we’re looking for people who are enthusiastic, good communicators and willing to support sessions.

For young volunteers (aged 16-25) we run a recognised volunteering scheme, linked to vInspired which enables young people to gain awards in return for volunteer hours contributed to the Active Slough programme.

As a volunteer with Active Slough you can receive the following:

  • free volunteer t-shirt
  • free water bottle
  • opportunities to access free training opportunities (including first aid, safeguarding & sports coaching qualifications)
  • opportunities for paid work
