CPD Events

Continued learning opportunities


It's a journey that never ends. And one that is shaped by experiences and learning opportunities gathered anywhere, anytime.

Throughout the season we will be running various CPD workshops to help support you in your coaching journey. 

These workshops will provide you with some excellent tools and session ideas to take away and use within your own groups and teams.

On completion of all CPD workshops, learning hours will also be added on to your FAN.
