About this programme
The key role of a Community Sport and Health Officer (CSHO) is to initiate behavioural changes in their local community, in relation to engagement in sports and physical activities. By working with local organisations, individuals will scope, organise and coordinate the delivery of opportunities for local communities to get more physically active.
A CSHO requires a comprehensive understanding of the principles of behaviour change and they must possess an ability to adapt delivery to suit different demographics and target groups.
They’ll gain in-depth knowledge of how to manage and lead colleagues and groups of volunteers to deliver a combined vision of developing and devising appropriate sports and physical activity programmes.
Upon completion of the Mitre training programme, the Community Sport and Health Officer will have the confidence, knowledge and ability to initiate meaningful change, while working in synergy and alongside national governing bodies of sport, county sports partnerships, community organisations and the voluntary sector.
