The Department of Education – VET Programs for Secondary Students (VPSS) and Little Athletics NSW (LANSW) are working together to create a Sport Coaching Student Workplacement & Skill Development Partnership.
The aim of this partnership is to, through LANSW centres, provide opportunities for students currently studying their Certificate II or Certificate III in Sport Coaching for their HSC to meet their 35hr Workplacement requirement. In addition it will also allow them the opportunity to meet assessment requirements connected to the coaching and conducting event units they will be studying.
The aim is for the program to be in full swing by the beginning of the 2020-2021 Little Athletics summer season.
In return it is expected that LANSW centres participating will benefit from students with experience in the sport coaching area being engaged in training nights and supporting the running of events throughout the year.
The students could potentially assist with:
