LOCAL OPPORTUNITY 22nd March! - Do you want to complete a FREE qualification and have the opportunity earn extra income?
Why not become a Smash Up Activator...
WHAT IS IT?
BADMINTON England is on a mission to put the ‘cool’ back into the ‘after school’ delivery of badminton with the launch of a brand new programme of highly social badminton game play, Smash Up
The SmashUp! programme aims to take this perception, shake then shatter it and make secondary after-school badminton something the pupils enjoy swinging a racket at by putting the focus on fun and friends rather than traditional skills development or PE–style delivery.
We are on the hunt for enthusiastic, engaging ‘activators’ (aged 17yrs and over) who know how to motivate and interact with non-sporty school kids to host and lead Smash Up in-school sessions.
WHAT DO I GET?
After completing the course and being approved by the course leader you will join our Activator database as well as having a FREE DBS check and if matched with a school, complete with a FREE online safeguarding course.
WHAT DELIVERY OPPORTUNITIES ARE THERE?
We currently have a number of schools across the county signed up to Smash Up with more coming on board. We will be looking to get their programmes started in the very near future.
WHERE AND WHEN WILL TRAINING BE TAKING PLACE?
Venue – Hengrove Park Leisure Centre, Hengrove Promenade, Hengrove Park, Bristol. BS14 0DE
Date - 22/03/2014 Time – 2.00-6.00p.m.
