CMS Academy main role will be providing opportunities for youth who are not be in employment, education or training with a meaningful progression to become a sports coach. We will provide an opportunity, a platform for young people to achieving their potential. Using sport as the driver we aim to improve the skill levels of the young people on our program, building their confidence, improving their social well being. The skills they will learn through sports coaching will provide the necessary skills for the young people allowing them to find sustainable employment.
The Academy will work closely with youth organisations who would refer young people to our program and our role will be to build the bridges to gain the confidence of the youth enabling them to become not only great coaches but well rounded individuals.
Not only will the young people work alongside the professional coaches but they will also be involved in the delivery of programs at after-school clubs, summer programmes, holiday camps, birthday parties and also into care homes for vulnerable adults.
There will also be opportunity for young people to work with Coach My Sport and the 'On the Road' program further down the line.
As part of our Academy program we will be offering Education Through CashBack (ETC) Modules which are FREE.
Education Through CashBack (ETC) is a national Scottish Sports Futures programme; developed in partnership with Youth Scotland, that aims to enhance sports coaches, youth workers and volunteers understanding of personal development through sport.
6 of the ETC modules are now SCQF accredited at levels 4 (Communication) and 5 (Working with Young People, Benefits of Physical Activity, Human Connection, Goal Setting and Conflict Resolution)
