Uxbridge College - Multi Sports Coaches



Details of the Charity:

Uxbridge College prides itself on its excellence in teaching, extra learning facilities and social activities.

We have invested over £60 million in the last few years updating and improving our classrooms, specialist facilities and social spaces, so you can study in a top-class environment. We have well-equipped classrooms with the latest technology and specialist spaces including workshops, garages, studios, media rooms, salons, kitchens, IT suites, labs and more.

Details of the Volunteering Opportunity:

Our recreational sessions are not structured in a strict coaching sessions, it is open to the whole of the college for all abilities as they turn up and play. During the sessions you are required to:

  • Take a register of all participants
  • Enforce college rules
  • Run little drills, if learners want to take part (I normally do this by a voteor a quick warm up)
  • Place learners into teams (ensuring all participants have opportunities to take part)
  • Officiate games
  • Giving coaching advise if the learners want to improve or show signs of needing guidance
  • Running tournaments as an end of term as a treat (prizes will be supplied by Uxbridge college)
  • Report First Aid
  • Ensure H&S policies are followed
  • Report any Safeguarding issue or suspicions to myself or the safeguarding officers

We are reasonably flexible with deliver as we are aware you are studying yourself however we have noticed it is more worthwhile running sessions in the lunch time hours (12-2) as this is when majority of the students are free. Once you have picked your day and time we would ask you to keep to this for a term, as changing causes inconstancy for the learners who have started to set these sessions into their weekly routine.
