I have just completed 2 weeks work experience with the Tony Blair Sports Foundation and I was so anxious about going in as I hadn't experience working in an office before and I wasn't sure what to expect. ...
"I am delighted to say that, since 2007, our Foundation has recruited, trained and placed over 3,500 new coaches in schools and clubs, right across the North East. ...These are the incredible people creating a sports participation legacy that the North East can be proud of.”
Working in close partnership with Cramlington Learning Village, the Foundation has spent the last 6 months not only training the year 9 Sports Leaders in basketball and cricket, but also providing these students with bespoke TBSF Volunteer Development workshops and sessions.
Ponteland Runners became TBSF partners in March 2012 and, thanks to the increased number of qualified coaches gained through the Foundation’s support, the club has gone from strength to strength.
