Coaches make a difference.
Inspiring coaches not only help us to learn new skills and be active, but they also have a transformative and lasting impact on community life. This page provides some useful links for both existing coaches and aspiring coaches.
SASP Bursary Scheme - funding to support qualifications
The aim of the SASP bursary scheme is to support coaches, volunteers, instructors and activators wishing to expand on their current coaching and physical activity qualifications and experiences. It has been put in place to assist with the required physical activity workforce within Somerset and to ultimately increase participation in sport and physical activity. For more information and the application form please click here.

SASP works closely with UK Coaching, the UK's technical agency for coaching. The organisation was established as a charity more than 30 years ago to promote for the public benefit the education of sports coaches, youth and community sports leaders, physical education teachers and other people engaged in the teaching and encouragement of sporting skills in the fields of physiology, biomechanics, psychology, sociology, philosophy and other sports-related subjects. Their website is a fantastic resource for all things coaching related.
CIMSPA is the professional development body for the UK's sport and physical activity sector, committed to supporting, developing and enabling professionals and organisations to succeed and, as a result, inspire our nation to become more active.
Skills for Sport is an exciting new programme aimed at recruiting a team of staff to deliver a fun, inclusive school games offer in primary schools.
We would particularly like to hear from Year 13 students leaving education this year. We will provide all the necessary training and kit and provide references for UCAS forms and for future employment. For more information please click here.
