Northants Girls Can Coach
Research has highlighted that women only account for around 30% of coaching workforce, this proportion drops to 17% of qualified coaches and only 12% of highly qualified coaches??!!
Northants Girls Can Coach is a new programme from Northamptonshire Sport to support more women into coaching! It will be made up of three key elements:
- Female Coaching Scholarships
- Northants Girls Can Coach Facebook group
- Survey for Female Coaches and Aspiring Female Coaches - How Can We Help You?
Female Coaching Scholarships
The Female Coaching Scholarships will be re-launching to coincide with 'Women In Sport Week' which commences Monday 3rd of October to the 9th.
The usual Northamptonshire Sport Coach Scholarship criteria will still apply, although additional support will be given to women submitting applications to ensure that they are funded. (Please note that applications from men will still be accepted but priority will go to those from women for this round only).
After a successful initial launch of Northamptonshire Sport's 'Northants Girls Can Coach' campaign back in January of this year, the scholarship has seen a total of 12 females receive up to 50% of a desired coaching qualification for their continued professional development. A total of £1767.50 has been awarded to the females across a variety of sports, including; Gymnastics, Athletics, Tennis, Equestrian, Football and Cricket within Northamptonshire.
The female priority scholarship window will run from the 3rd of October to the 17th of February.
