How to organise training
Alongside our open Club Matters training programme, organisations and community groups in England can request one or more learning opportunities from our suite of Club Matters training. Training is delivered exclusively by an approved Club Matters tutor and can be requested virtually or face to face.
“The tutor is great at making the subject very relevant for our community. The interactive nature of the workshops work really well. The content is challenging and stimulating”
“Great workshop. It enthused me to go back to the club and to implement a lot of the things we discussed that we weren't doing already”
The training is fully funded by Sport England and therefore there is no cost to course organisers. All we ask is that organisers guarantee to meet the minimum number of delegates required to run the training and provide feedback on their experience of working with Club Matters.
|Learning||Topic||Duration||Minimum/Maximum Number of Delegates|
|Workshop||An Introduction to Legal Structures||2 hours||8/20|
|Workshop||A Club for Everyone||2 hours||8/20|
|Workshop||Building Back Stronger||2 hours||8/20|
|Workshop||Developing a Marketing Strategy||2 hours||8/20|
|Community of Practice – Share and Learn||Dealing with Increasing Costs||1.15 hours||8/25|
|Workshop||Engaging Your Community||2 hours||8/20|
|Workshop||Financial Sustainability||2 hours||8/20|
|Workshop||Leadership Teams||2 hours||8/20|
|Workshop||Planning for Your Future||2 hours||8/20|
|Workshop||Participant Experience||2 hours||8/20|
|Webinar||Raising Money to Sustain Your Organisation||1 hour||8/25|
|Workshop||Volunteer Experience||2 hours||8/20|
Please note that although the standard workshop length is 2 hours, workshops can also be delivered in bite-sized format and can be be-spoked to suit need. For example, we have experience of modifying workshop content to support delivery at National Governing Body events or conferences.
