Personal Development

When you gain a qualification, it is often not the end of a journey. We need to keep our qualifications up to date and current. All of the courses in this section will do just that – enable you to brush up on elements that may have become a bit rusty and keep track of the most up to date developments within your award scheme or governing body.

There are various options available for your personal development, to support your coaching and leading. Whether you’re looking for an introduction to the various disciplines or exploring a variety of topics to support your coaching and leading, there’s something for everyone.

If you cant see a course in the calendar that you would like to attend contact Oisin Hallissey on 02843722158 or email to express an interest and we may be able to facilitate a course.

Current situation

As you are probably aware the current advice from the Northern Ireland Executive, Health Promotion Agency NI and Health & Safety Executive NI, as well as our expert group within Sport NI is that we cannot deliver any face to face courses for our customers including use of the Hot Rock Climbing Wall.

We know that you and many others like minded folk are very keen to get back on track with your plans to attend and complete a range of personal skills training and qualifications in a range of disciplines.

Believe us when we say we are equally keen to get outside with you and help you reach your goals and complete that journey.

How do we know? Because every day we get emails and phone calls asking when will courses resume and with every NI Executive mention of easing of restrictions the emails and phone calls are more frequent……
