Education Pathway

VOLUNTARY ENTRY

Volunteering brings great personal rewards and helps others to grow. you can work alongside our current experienced volunteers to learn about the way our club is run. many new volunteers may have no clear idea of where to apply their skills in the best way however, this will change over time.

the more time you can give to young people the more you will learn.

voluntary roles in our club include parent volunteer, youth volunteer, sports leader, committee member, minibus driver, assistant coach, media related roles.

ENHANCED DBS APPLICATIONS ARE MANDATORY AND THE COST WILL BE REFUNDED AFTER CLEARANCE IF VOLUNTEERING WITH GAD KHALSA SPORTS CLUB.


 

We have links with the Derbyshire county FA (Football Association) & The FA who advertise many sports related courses on their websites.  

please see the links below for more detailed information. gad khalsa is a fa charter standard club therefore we receive a concession on some courses - it may be more cost effective to book via our club so please ask us before you book.

our club education pathway allows young people from 14 years of age to stay qualified and gain certification which is especially useful for school leavers.
