Student workshops

Our Student Sport Workshops were launched after popular demand – it’s clear that students are keen to step up for LGBTQ+ inclusion in sport.

Since 2020 we have supported over 400 students embed inclusive practice within their Sport Clubs and prepare them for graduate employment.

We know that being on a Sport Club committee is about more than administrative skills or on-pitch leadership. Great student leaders are aware of how inclusive environments can benefit all club members, and how actively standing up for inclusion can positively impact their wider communities.

Support your Clubs and Committees this year with CPD-accredited workshops designed specifically for Student Sport.
