We were on a mission to celebrate the great success of our female coaches in sport within Tyne & Wear with a campaign called #PassOnYourPassion, for all Northern CSP's. Read the information below to get an insight into to what we did and click on the case studies to realise just how inspiring our female coaches are.
Tyne & Wear Sport is embarking on the Pass On Your Passion campaign to recognise great coaches in our area and encourage more women into coaching. #PassOnYourPassion is currently taking place across the whole of the North of England and highlights the hard work and dedication of our female coaches, and the positive impact they have on the people they coach.
Currently only 30% of the coaching workforce are women and the percentage of women coaches receiving a qualification each year is 17%. We want to improve these statistics and we believe we can begin to do this by delivering upon the #PassOnYourPassion campaign.
The campaign involves 12 County Sports Partnerships in the North of England each dedicating a week to raising the profile of women in coaching.
