Chris Samways

My role at the Partnership is to support coaching and workforce by coordinating national and county training providers that range from national governing body qualifications to mental health and behaviour change workshops. I deliver an annual training programme alongside a week-long event, Coach Education Week, that aims to support the core market of coaches and supporting them with wider skills such as mental health awareness, understanding unconscious bias and techniques to create healthy participation habits. Our own delivery programmes are also reviewed to see what training and support is needed to develop the suitability of our workforce to engage with diverse participant’s needs, from Fit, Fed & Read to Sporting Chance. 

I also deliver our Active Local project in Sopwell, St Albans, assisting the community clubs, organisation and residents to create more accessible activity for the local population.
