It has been a year since ActivCare Coaching, part of Nouveau Group, ran their first training day in the North East with Middlesbrough Council and Barchester Healthcare.
Prior to starting their one-day course with ActivCare Coaching, both organisations had a great level of understanding on the important role exercise plays in their client’s and resident’s wellbeing. To further their knowledge and to be qualified to offer frequent exercise sessions, both organisations took part in our Level 2 Exercise Leader training day!
Through ActivCare Coaching, Middlesbrough Council and Barchester Healthcare had the opportunity to become accredited Seated Exercise Leaders – meaning they are now trained to deliver seated exercise classes to their residents independently.
The day was a huge success, attendees enjoyed learning how to lead classes and also enjoyed discussing how to support clients and residents with mental health challenges, dementia and physical disabilities. All attendees left feeling confident they were ready to deliver their own seated exercise sessions:
Maggie, from Barchester Healthcare said: “The training was very enjoyable! The course was well organised with friendly tutors. Will recommend it!”
ActivCare Coaching gives organisations the opportunity to learn from industry experts without having to add huge expense.
Bethany Ainsley, the founder of The Nouveau Group, said:
“Like Nouveau Group as a whole, ActivCare Coaching is passionate about increasing physical activity levels in older people by helping more people access fun, high quality dance and physical activity sessions.”
“ActivCare Coaching aims to produce a cohort of ‘train the trainer’ alumni that can deliver activities to more and more people (increasing physical activity for all) across the UK and beyond.”
ActivCare’s qualified trainers offer one-day accredited training in seated exercise, seated dance exercise as well as online courses. All training can support your CQC and they are a excellent option for CPD.
With such a success at our last training day hosting at Nouveau Wellbeing HQ we are really excited to say that our next Level 2 Seated Exercise Leader Training Day will take place there!
