Coach Sport in Italy This Summer!

Action It Theatre Company are recruiting sports coaches for their 2017 summer schools in Italy. EXPERIENCE OF WORKING WITH YOUNG PEOPLE IS ESSENTIAL.

Teachers are required to fly to Pisa on the 10th/11th June. The summer school starts on the June 12th and will run until Saturday 1st July. Hours are approximately 8am/9am – 4pm Mon-Fri & some schools will also hold a Saturday morning session from 9.00-12.00. These times may change slightly depending on the school in which teachers are placed in. Teachers are required to be at the school 30 minutes prior to the course start time every day.

Teachers will be placed in a new school every week in a different town in the Tuscany or Emiglia Romagna region. A weekly fee is offered based on the current minimum wage rates plus flights are paid for and accommodation and meals will be provided with a host family.

The aim of the week is to teach English through the use of drama, art and sport and for the students to perform a final show in English at the end of the week.  The sports sessions are to help the students work as a team,increase fitness levels and enhance co-ordination.  Sports coaches will be responsible for teaching sporting terminology and rules of play in English for sports such as; football, badminton, cricket, rounders, volleyball, basketball and relay games.

During this period it can be very hot which can make it extremely hard work.  This said it is incredibly rewarding and it is a great way to practice coaching people who speak very little English. It is also a great way to see a bit of Italy in the evenings and at the weekends.

Two of the School’s students have had excellent experiences on this programme before. (See Shanie’s account here)


The ideal candidates must have patience, confidence, be fun, have high energy levels and enjoy working with children from 5-13yrs.

Two days training to be given in Lincoln prior to starting.

Bursaries for FA Level 1 Futsal Coaching Course (April 2nd, 9th)

An FA Level One futsal coaching course is scheduled to be delivered at the University’s Sports Centre on Sundays 2nd and 9th of April, 2017 (10:00am – 1:30pm both days). Lincolnshire FA have kindly offered four 50% bursaries for UoL sports students to apply for in order to attend the course. This means that instead of paying the usual £50 course registration cost, you would only need to pay £25 for registration.

To apply for one of these bursaries, all you need to do is answer the following two questions:

1) How would the community benefit from you becoming an accredited level one futsal coach?
2) How will a level one coaching futsal qualification help your own career and personal development?

Please keep answers to a maximum of 350 words for each question and send your application to Alex Blackett via email ( before 5pm on Wednesday 8th March, 2017 (Extended deadline)

Please also include in your application the following:

Full name, DOB, Address (where you would like your certificate sent to), Phone & Email. If you have an FA number (FAN) please include this as well. If you do not have a FAN then Lincolnshire FA will set one up for you should you be successful in your application.

Successful candidates will be notified by Friday 10th March, 2017. Your application confirms that you will be able to attend both scheduled sessions as attendance of these is mandatory to receive the qualification. The full £50 registration fee will need to be paid should you receive the bursary but not attend the course (without a legitimate reason).
