Go Further, Go Higher

StreetGames’ commitment to supporting students to ‘Go Further’ & ‘Go Higher’ as part of their Sports Development Career Pathway.

Student satisfaction, wellbeing and personal development are more important than ever for learners at College and University. Students are looking for an exceptional Further and Higher Education experience that provides high-quality tuition and a pathway for broader personal development.

StreetGames’ award-winning suite of innovative personal development training can help to level up your student offer, boosting retention and enhancing wellbeing and personal development for participants.

Our industry-recognised training can be tailored to suit the individual needs of institutions and departments. It equips participants with the skills and knowledge they need to:

– better understand their audience

– design creative solutions

– measure their impact

These ‘training interventions’ can help students and staff from Further and Higher Education establishments to increase the social impact of their work – both at the grassroots level on campus and in order to build social capacity and a positive footprint amongst YOUR College or University’s wider community.

Personal development with social value

StreetGames was founded to harness the power of sport to create positive change in the lives of young people living in underserved communities right across the UK. Our focus is on activating young people in the hardest-to-reach areas and our training reflects that aim – developing the leadership and communication skills required to engage difficult audiences.

Our highly respected training programme is continually honed and improved – making it the ideal choice for coaches, volunteers and learners with varying expectations and needs. Providing learning opportunities that are as active as they are interactive has been central to StreetGames’ success and to the continued success of our learners.

Our training has been created to have the widest possible application, but most of all our training interventions are rooted in our organisation’s social values and delivered in a way that is true to StreetGames’ mission: to change lives through sport. StreetGames prides itself both on developing innovative training techniques and on sharing this expertise with others.

Innovative practical & experimental learning for Further Education students and staff

StreetGames recognise the challenge that FE establishments have in enabling College students to secure the number of practical sports coaching hours as part of their core studies.  Our varied offer of Activator workshops from a number of different sports are the perfect way to enable College students to enhance their coaching practice while undertaking practical learning hours in sports they might not have previously considered.

All workshops are three hours in duration and are delivered face-to-face by a StreetGames tutor. The price for each Activator Workshop is £600.

Doorstep Sport Explained

All of StreetGames’ work—from training courses to sports delivery—is rooted in and informed by our tried and tested Doorstep Sport methodology.

Doorstep Sport is an innovative sporting offer developed to address many of the traditional barriers to activity amongst young people living in poverty.

Doorstep Sport projects are fun, informal sports clubs that operate at the right time, in the right place, for the right price and in the right style. Together, they provide an exciting and varied sports offer to young people living in low-income, underserved communities, improving motivation and encouraging them to develop long-term sporting habits.

We carry this ethos into many of our coaching systems to give our trainees the skills they need to activate even the hardest to reach communities, from day one.

Accredited Qualification: Level 1 Award in Developing Community Activities for Youth at Risk

– 2 days

– £3,250 (minimum of 10 learners/maximum of 16 learners)

This accredited qualification is a fantastic way for young volunteers to take the next step toward becoming a young community leader, particularly working in disadvantaged communities. Young people will develop an understanding of working in communities, partnership working and their role as activity leaders among numerous other topics. Young people will also plan a community-based event as the final module, which in many areas has been turned into a funded project led by young people.
