Workshop Focus: Shaping your future with the IoS

19 September 2011

With just over a month until the ASA Swimming Conference 2011, each week we are going to take a closer look at the workshops that have been designed to inspire you with forward thinking and give you a fresh perspective on your club activities, with the ultimate aim of helping you make your club fit for the future.

Booking is now open for the ASA Swimming Conference 2011, which is set to take place on Saturday 22 October at the Crowne Plaza, Nottingham.

The conference will incorporate a full day’s programme with keynote guest speakers, David Sparkes (Chief Executive of the ASA) and Sir Keith Mills (Deputy Chair of LOCOG), and a ‘Communication Zone’ where you will be able to speak to ASA staff about matters that concern you and your club.

In addition to the conference programme, there is the opportunity to attend two workshops, which include:

  • Grow your swimming club: how to transform your swimming club and make it vibrant, visible and viable
  • Shaping your future with the IoS
  • Big Splash and beyond
  • Developing young leaders
  • ASA 2013-2017 strategy
  • Young volunteers: you are the future!
  • Online membership system
  • swim21: shaping the future
  • The Swimmers journey: maximise results from your Learn to Swim programme to retain more swimmers

This week we are going to take a closer look at ‘Shaping your future with the IoS’ which will be delivered by Emma Phipps, Assistant Head of IoS Operations.

This session will explain how the IoS and its provisions can support you and your club's development. Taking a look at the variety of courses and delivery options will enable you to make the right choices at the right time.

The purpose of the session is to allow you to experience online learning and introduce the options available, provide an understanding of the purpose of Training Needs Analysis (TNAs) and how it can support you, recognise Prior Learning and how it can support your club, and introduce future courses with the IoS.

In addition, all attendees will be registered for a free online learning CPD.

Don’t miss out on this chance to feedback, engage with us, get involved and help shape the future!
