WSA launches NEW online Training Platform for sport & leisure sector

The Welsh Sports Association (WSA) is excited to announce the launch of its new online Training Platform in collaboration with training platform provider eCoach!  

The new online Training Platform, in partnership with eCoach, is designed for all colleagues across the sport and leisure sector to participate in accredited professional development. 

There are two courses immediately available with Welsh transcripts, furthering the WSA’s commitment to the development and utilisation of the Welsh language. 

The online training course, Introduction to Sports Governance in Wales, is delivered by industry expert Amanda Bennett and is designed to broaden an individuals’ basic understanding of sports governance principles and practice in Wales.   

The Legal Structures for Sports Clubs training course is delivered by WSA partners Loosemores Solicitors, and is designed for everyone working, or volunteering in the sport and leisure sector to broaden an individual’s understanding of the various legal structures available to sports organisations and clubs. 

Both of these courses will conclude with a multiple-choice assessment; and upon completion, candidates will receive a certificate. 

The WSA’s Commercial Manager, Tom Sharp, commented: 

“We are delighted to bring this online training platform to WSA members. We appreciate that individuals don’t always have the time to commit to a face-to-face session, so this gives colleagues the opportunity to upskill in their own time and when convenient.  

“Following the uptake of our Covid-19 Awareness Course for Sport & Leisure, we wanted to continue to offer a cost-effective training solution for clubs and volunteers, as well as our core membership base – the first two courses available do exactly this! 

“A huge thank you must go to Simon and his team at eCoach for providing the platform and bringing our content to life” 

eCoach Director, Simon Richards, added:  

“All of us at eCoach are excited to have launched this training platform with the Welsh Sports Association.  

“The Introduction to Sports Governance in Wales and Legal Structures for Sports Clubs training course will help learners to develop an understanding of these important topics in an interactive and engaging way. 

“This is just the start,” continued Simon. “We’re excited to be able to offer our Accelerate Sport catalogue of courses on the platform in the near future, providing the WSA and their membership with a huge range of online training modules on a range of key topics.” 

Speaking on the importance of the Welsh Language, Simon stated:  

“We recognised the importance of delivering these training modules in both Welsh and English. We share the WSA’s commitment to utilise and develop the Welsh language.” 

If you’re a registered WSA member you will automatically receive a discount of 20% on all courses listed on the platform. This includes all not for profit member clubs and volunteers. 

In addition, the WSA can organise bulk purchases of the courses with WSA members, who are keen to purchase training courses on their member clubs’ behalf. 

Individuals who previously completed the WSA COVID-19 online training course will automatically receive an email containing new log-in details to access the portal and the new training courses. They will also be able to retrieve their previous COVID-19 course certificate. 

Additional courses will be uploaded in due course, which include, Data Protection Fundamentals for Sport and Leisure Organisations and First Aid for Sport & Leisure Organisations.
