Lessons in Athlete Lifestyles: TASS Adds Two New Courses to its Education Offer

The Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme and UK Coaching launch 'Introduction to Lifestyle Support' eLearning module

UK Coaching has been working in partnership with The Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS) to develop a dynamic new eLearning module, ‘Introduction to Lifestyle Support’, which is pitched at coaches, athletes, practitioners and parents keen to find out more about the provision of athlete support and its positive impact.

It adds real flexibility to our education offering. It’s self-guided learning and we’re confident those signing up for the course will gain a basic understanding of the key concepts and be able to click their way towards a greater appreciation of athlete lifestyle!

TASS is a Sport England funded partnership between talented athletes, education institutions and national governing bodies of sport, working together to bring the best out of our country’s most exciting young talents. They are dedicated to supporting and encouraging dual career student-athletes, helping them to manage their commitments and develop as confident and organised individuals.

For those interested in a more in-depth look at the athlete lifestyle, TASS has also added a new Level 2 course to its suite of education pathway resources. ‘Understanding an Athlete’s Lifestyle’ was piloted in May and immediately struck a chord with learners keen to gain a broader picture of a key talking point in the dual career conversation. The two-day course, developed with support from 1st4sport (the trading arm of UK Coaching), is designed to upskill those working with athletes.
