Coaching skills funding

A new programme that funds teachers, youth leaders and sports coaches to improve their sports coaching skills is now available in the Borders.

Coldstream’s Julie Middlemiss Brown is the region’s Education Through Cashback (ETC) co-ordinator, and explained: “The programme was created to ensure that those on the ground are well equipped to engage those most at risk, nurturing an understanding of the value of sport and physical activity when working with often challenging young people.” or phone 07788298521
