Ignite Sport > Adult Education > Active Wellbeing

Its no secret that by participating in physical activity we can keep our body fit and healthy but how about the mind? In this active wellbeing course we explore the facts around the improvement of mental health with physical activity and how this can help those who live with depression, anxiety and lack motivation.  The course will educate learners on how to help improve wellbeing via exercise, activities, self motivation and organisation and how factors such as diet, the outdoors and endorphins play their part.

Our Active Wellbeing short course is a great launchpad to all things health-related; the course will enable you to lead sessions in activities to aid a healthy lifestyle and general wellbeing for you and/or others.

Perfect for those with a keen interest in health and wellbeing or those working with individuals or groups, whether in the community, organised classes, youth centres, activity centres, activities with friends and family... the list goes on!

Whether you are a professional in your field or a beginner, this course will benefit your journey.

Places are open to adults (aged 19+) who would like to self-develop via workshops and online learning.

We are pleased to offer this active wellbeing course in partnership with Activate Learning. The course is designed to encourage activity leaders to recognise health benefits, and structure engaging and challenging sessions, whilst developing simple transferable skills.

Learners undertaking this award will develop their knowledge and confidence in delivering physical activity sessions. All learners will also receive online resources and a delivery toolkit to enhance lesson ideas and delivery performance.

The course will be delivered via an initial group workshop (1 hour) followed by portfolio building, task completion, and projects. Completion of the course will be by way of a supportive practical observation at your chosen setting.
