Develop new skills with Ignite Sport's free online classes


The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on hundreds of thousands of families across the United Kingdom. Even as time edges closer towards a full year under tight restrictions, we are still continually adapting our ways of living as home-schooling and working and learning remotely becomes the new normal.

But it is true to say with every cloud comes a silver lining. And in many examples, COVID has juggled the public's perception of what is important in life – wellbeing, staying active, spending time with loved ones and facing new challenges. The latter of those points has been particularly relevant to Ignite Sport UK and our fully funded, online, remote courses that encourage those interested in sport, fitness and wellbeing to gain a qualification in Activity Leadership.

New opportunities

Remember banana bread? In April, baking banana bread became the new playground craze. And that craze was fuelled by people's motivation to focus the mind amid the first lockdown. Suddenly, we had lost our morning commute, our five-minute catch ups in the school playground, and – in many cases – the structure of our full-time jobs. With more time available than ever, fresh opportunities unearthed themselves.

Adapting to digital

At Ignite Sport UK, we have been witness to a surge in demand for our fully funded online courses in partnership with Activate Learning. Our online programmes accommodate people looking to improve their skillsets in several sectors within sports coaching and education for adults. Those who enroll will learn how to take their coaching skills to the next level via workshops, tasks and resources plus develop an understanding of how to structure engaging sessions while establishing transferable skills. Each of our remote learning programmes are underpinned by either a relevant Level 2 qualification or a digital certificate of achievement.

Flexible learning

For 22 years, Ignite Sport UK has been a trusted training provider that supports those wishing to develop activity in themselves and others. Originating in Oxford, we have a passion for inspiring our local Oxfordshire community and beyond to keep an active and healthy lifestyle.

Our experience tells us everyone is different, and our expert team of tutors and mentors are always there to support those we work with. Importantly, our online programmes work around you and allow participants the flexibility to complete courses in their own time remotely.

After an initial workshop via Zoom where you will take the first steps into your new qualification and meet likeminded individuals, we grant everyone free rein on their chosen course so studies can fit around their lifestyle.

No barriers

If you are aged 19 or older and live in Oxfordshire, Berkshire or Surrey, many of our online courses are available at no cost. There is also no minimum education requirement to enroll in our courses with many participants enrolling from a non-sport background that wish to help at a grassroots level sports team. We also welcome those already qualified in the sport and fitness industry who wish to add to their skillset and knowledge base.

If a free online, remote learning, course with Ignite Sport UK interests you, why not drop our friendly team a message by emailing or call 0300 303 0890.
