Exercise Instructor Older Adults Foundation Level -'Live' Online 

 

 

This workshop is suitable for those individuals such as Activity Co-Ordinators, Healthcare Assistants, home carers or any other person with an enthusiasm to deliver exercise to older adults. We educate you on the key principles of exercise programming, using programmes and strategies innovated over 20 plus years of working with older adults.  Participants learn how to set up a class and what systems are needed to ensure its safety and continuation.

How does it work? 

  • Once you have booked a place we will email you a welcome pack containing all the information you will need.

  • Courses take place on two consecutive Tuesdays from 9.00am to 4.15pm. 

  • Places will be limited to a maximum of 12 participants

The innovative courses is a mixture of interactive e-learning modules and live zoom group sessions. We send the participant an email with their login information. On the course day, they login to zoom for the live and interactive practical sessions. And when prompted, they login to the interactive e-learning platform - so they click on and work through engaging images and content at their own pace online. We then come back together for further live interactive practical zoom sessions. 

 

Participants will require a laptop or tablet (not a phone) and a good, stable internet connection to complete our courses. They will also need a quiet place to work from for the duration of the course, which can be from work or home!
