Developing the Developers
Over the last year, we have been working with Club football an organisation in China to develop staff through the coach development to coach education pathway via Premier Skills, in order to help support the continued growth and development whilst helping to build capacity in country to further cascade Premier Skills courses.
Through this modular approach, we have designed the curriculum for the face to face training, provide on the job training, mentoring whilst assessment and feedback. To date we a have a number of Clubfootball staff currently delivering on certain Premier Skills programmes in China and working with their team we have delivered well over 8 courses during this period.
A key to any to any train the trainer process is to ensure the delivery team are fit for purposes and currently this collaboration between us the Premier League and the British Council continues to evolve within this area which is mutually beneficial for Clubfootball staff development as an organisation and China Premier Skills future roll out.
