CHANGES: Train the Trainer upskills staff to deliver workshops, tackling challenging initiation and hazing activity in student sport

Monday 29th June 2020

The CHANGES: Train the Trainer programme is designed to up-skill staff in the network to deliver awareness workshops to clubs in an attempt to tackle the challenge of initiation and hazing activity within student sport. Read more about the partnership, and the work done so far.

As of August 2019, the SSS and CHANGES partnership, led by Professor Moira Lafferty (University of Chester) and her colleague Dr. Caroline Wakefield (Liverpool Hope University), continue to work towards a joint aim of making student sport safe and inclusive for all. Together we are continuing to work towards the commitments set out in the partnership agreement alongside the CHANGES trainers, Development Committee, and Equality Steering Group.

So far the partnership has hosted two Train the Trainer programmes which has led to the upskilling of 17 student sports staff across five regions of Scotland. In February this year, SSS invited the trainers to a CHANGES networking and planning workshop to discuss the journey so far and future steps. Amongst other things, the trainers made it clear a third train the trainer programme was required to reach the target of training all student sports clubs in Scotland.

Train the Trainer Course

The third Train the Trainer will take place on Friday 23rd October in Edinburgh. The deadline for signing up is Monday 19th October at 12:00. Professor Lafferty’s research highlights the advantages of having external staff deliver the CHANGES workshops to student clubs. The overall aim is to be in a position where we have developed a large enough workforce so that institutions are able to support one another to train up all our 614 clubs in the network.

Please note that we are mindful of the challenges Covid-19 may bring with delivering this course. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep up to date with public health guidelines so that we can take all the necessary steps to ensure the safety of those involved.

📲Sign up here for the next CHANGES: Train the Trainer course.

Michael Webster from the University of Edinburgh, participated in the training last year and from that, co-delivered a workshop to over thirty sports club members.

He said: “The Train the Trainer course was engaging, informative and eye-opening. The effects of hazing and negative group events can be catastrophic, so to have the ability to deliver workshops with the aim of positively influencing the culture of student sports clubs, feels incredibly impactful, and fulfilling on a personal level.”

“The tools and techniques from the course have allowed me to frame conversations around looking to the future, creating new traditions, and utilising team-building techniques to create inclusive, positive, and safe welcome activities.”

Scottish Disability Sport shares a case study alongside the University of Edinburgh’s Institute for Sport, Physical Education & Health Sciences. The study reviews the impact that disability inclusion training had on fourth-year PE students.

Scottish Disability Sport (SDS) has an excellent partnership with the University of Edinburgh’s Institute for Sport, Physical Education & Health Sciences.  The funding from Sainsbury’s has enabled SDS to deliver three UK Disability Inclusion Training (DIT) sessions to 87 fourth-year PE students, prior to them undertaking their final teaching practice.

June Murray Associate Tutor, within the Faculty of Education at the University of Edinburgh, provides an overview as to the importance of PE students gaining greater knowledge, understanding and applying it through the UK DIT regarding the inclusion of young people with a disability.  June said:

“It helps the students to become more professional, empathetic, and committed to teaching all pupils.  Furthermore, it allows them to plan for the huge diversity of needs within a class.”

Q. Why is it important for PE students to gain greater knowledge and understanding regarding the inclusion of young people with a disability?

June explains:

“The training puts the students in a better position to demonstrate more fully the values and standards required of a PE teacher.  It is the combination of theory and practice that is a vital combination and provides a tangible learning environment.

“The content provides a kudos for the training being transmitted and has proved to be invaluable learning for all the students. In essence, it brings about greater resonance for the PE students in Year 4 when completing their teaching practice and about to embark on their NQT Year.  The University further identifies that the learning that takes place for the PE students makes them more thoughtful about planning and there is a definite shift in their practice and ability to plan for inclusion.”

A central theme that runs throughout is to highlight ability, not disability and it often changes the PE student’s view as to the imperative need for differentiation in teaching.  The subtle nuances of differentiation can mean the difference between inclusion for a pupil with disabilities and isolation.

Throughout the training, cards were provided to the students to assist their learning and provide them with support. Below are some of the quotes that have come directly from the 4th year students who undertook the training in November 2019 and went out on placement in January 2020.

The following Q&A in the article is with participants who completed the disability inclusion training.

Q. What do you consider to be the key learning from the disability inclusion training?

“The DIT has massively enhanced my knowledge of being able to alter my teaching in order to best meet the needs of every pupil in the class in a fun and creative way. The content that was taught through these practical sessions is fundamentally the most important part of my teaching practice as what was taught goes way beyond just supporting pupils with additional support needs, it’s about recognising that every pupil learns differently. I would consider the DIT course to be vital for all student and even graduated teachers.

“Deeper understanding of the importance of inclusion for those with disabilities and without, especially within a sports context.

“I think the biggest thing I have taken from these workshops is getting to experience how vulnerable some young people will feel when they are in PE/school in general.

“I don’t think I realised how much I learned from the training until being on placement and now reflecting on it, very glad we got to have the training.

“The key thing I took from the training was knowledge for different disabilities and then the process of adapting activities by the space and equipment to help the learner. Before the training, I had little awareness of the impacts of different disabilities and how to best understand an individual’s needs. The course also taught me to focus on things that individuals can do and not only focus on what they can’t do.”

“I’m definitely more aware of differentiating lessons to ensure that everyone is included whether it be equipment or different challenges.”

Q. What has been the practical impact been during your placement?

“It’s definitely changed my view on how important my job as a teacher, to include these pupils and all the possibilities that are available so all can participate in my PE lessons.”

“I have used a lot of the content from the DIT in my student placements. A very memorable moment for me was on PEP, I shadowed one pupil with additional support needs in all of his classes, once a week for 4 weeks. He made it very clear that PE was by far his least favourite subject as he struggled to mix with other kids in his class and felt too under pressure in a PE environment so he very rarely took part. However, as I was there as an extra member of staff, I was able to support him on a 1 to 1 basis in PE for 3 weeks and we simply did our own adapted PE lesson isolated from the other pupils. The lessons I prepared were entirely things that I had been taught within the DIT sessions held at the University. I simply just wanted him to be engaged with PE and enjoy it more so he would build up his confidence. In my final week of PEP, I asked him if he felt like he would want to go back into PE with the other pupils and he was hesitant at first but agreed.  It may not seem like a huge life-changing story but the difference of being able to take part in fun activities and bring enjoyment to his physical exercise had changed his outlook on the subject in a small period of time. It’s something that I feel very happy about.”

“It has enabled me to grasp a greater understanding of multiple disabilities and helped me to identify the barriers that students with disabilities face on a daily basis.”

“The course has allowed me to gain a deep appreciation and admiration of those with disabilities. This has meant that I ask those within my class to help me reflect upon my lessons for next time. By doing so this has helped build relationships while teaching while also aiding my own development.”

“One example I would give is from my 4th-year placement where I had one pupil who wouldn’t bring his kit and didn’t want to join in etc., but by gradually encouraging him over the weeks and using adapted activities, he started joining in as he felt more comfortable within the class.

“The training has definitely given me more confidence when there are pupils in my classes with a disability or learning difficulty by making me aware of the appropriate ways to communicate with the pupil and tailor lessons to allow them to successfully be involved in the lesson. It has also made me put more thought into how I am giving instructions or explaining activities so all pupils can understand what they are to do. By being more aware of pupils’ needs has also made me think about the class setup and who pupils are working with and the space they are working in, which is something I learned on my last placement guided by what I learned from the course.”

“I had a pupil in my class that had tunnel vision, taking from the training, when I put on the tunnel vision goggles and I felt for myself how it felt, I made sure that I was doing everything to make her feel comfortable and, benefiting from lessons as much as everyone else in the class.”

Thank you to Scottish Disability Sport and the University of Edinburgh’s Institute for Sport, Physical Education & Health Sciences for sharing the student journey with us.

SSS are delighted to confirm that the Healthy Body Health Mind programme has secured funding from the Scottish Government for an additional three years! Read the full story here.

Scottish Student Sport and the Scottish Government have agreed a three-year commitment to Healthy Body Healthy Mind, ensuring the project work will continue into 2024.  Alongside ASH Scotland and NUS Scotland, SSS will be working to support Scottish institutions to deliver a campus with physical activity, mental health provision and smoking prevention at its core.

The landscape of education is now very different, with student mental health and well-being playing a more critical role than ever to the student experience and wider society. The Healthy Body Healthy Mind programme aims to bring about a positive change to the institutions working towards an award. Working alongside physical activity and smoking prevention we can all improve Scotland’s recovery.

To gain a Healthy Body Healthy Mind Award students’ associations, sports unions, colleges and universities must work together on a project that brings about practical changes across the whole institution. These changes include activities that make progress towards smoke-free campuses, improve uptake in sport and recreational programmes, and better signpost student and staff communities to practical support and resources around positive mental wellbeing.

The three-year commitment gives institutions the opportunity to work towards their achievements at a pace that works for them. This new flexible and supportive approach has been welcomed by the current cohort of institutions. The aim is to ensure that institutions achieve their level with the support and help of the project team who comprise of SSS, ASH Scotland and NUS Scotland.

At the moment, 15 institutions are currently engaged with HBHM, equating to 40% of institutions in Scotland! The door is always open and SSS will always welcome any new sign-ups. More information on HBHM and how to sign up on how to sign can be found here.

SSS are pleased to announce that we have been awarded the Intermediate Level of the Equality Standard in Sport. Read the full story about what the award is and how we achieved it!

SSS recently received the very positive news that we have been awarded the Intermediate Level of the Equality Standard in Sport.

This achievement represents three years of excellent work within the organisation and significant leaps across student sport in terms of participation, projects, and partnerships.

The Equality Standard is supported by sportscotland – via Plan4Sport – as part of its expert resource help to governing bodies and other partners. By working through the standard, funded organisations are encouraged to own and deliver an Equality Action Plan that can demonstrably improve their impact on people in protected groups.

For SSS this has produced a number of highlights including:

  • Our well-developed work with partners at Scottish Disability Sport
  • An active contribution to the SAMH Charter for Physical Activity & Sport
  • A lead delivery role within the rejuvenated Healthy Body, Healthy Mind programme
  • The collection, collation and analysis of better equality data
  • A series of impactful campaigns and projects including Rainbow Laces, CHANGES, and She Can She Will
  • Embedding value-based decision making across SSS – adopting an INCLUSIVE approach in all we do

Reaching the Intermediate award milestone represents another 2021 strategy target achieved, and so it is fitting to pause and celebrate the network-wide commitment that this represents.

SSS would like to thank all who have contributed to the work thus far, both across our membership and within the many partner organisations who have supported us along the way. A special thanks to Barbara Lawson and all of our Equality Steering Group members for giving additional volunteer time to help guide the work. We couldn’t have managed it without you.

Having reached this level SSS is now amongst the most developed sports bodies in the country. This important work will now continue towards the top-level (Advanced) over the coming years, in our bid to make student sport a place where everyone is able and welcome to play.

‘Future Proofing Through the Lens of Sport’ with Mark Stevenson

The future is going to be messy, but sport has a vital role to play in getting us through the next 30 years. ‘Relectant Futurist’ Mark Stevenson will take you through the good, the bad and the ugly of the coming decades, what he’s learnt about innovation and systems change in writing his two bestselling books – and what it all means for sport…

From Student Sport to Student Support – We all have a Part to Play.

Drawing from his 18 years of experience as a Director of Sport, current BUCS Inclusion Chair & Director of Student Life at RGU, Filippo Antoniazzi, will give an insight into the daily challenges facing student services. Filippo will identify that the unique manner in which university and college sports departments work in genuine partnership with students is the future in building communities and supporting our students.

Emotional Resilience Masterclass Delivered by Switch The Play

Give strength to the voice inside that tells you “yes, you will, because yes you can.”

Champions are made when the end of the road is in sight, the tank is empty, the light is dark, and they find another level, they keep moving forward.

If at first you don’t succeed…? How often have you come up against a challenge in sport? Sport is full of highs and lows, successes and set-backs, celebrations and sadness – things hit us on a daily basis to knock us off track from our goals. A physical knock can cause injury and despair, but it can be the mental knocks that affect us the most, causing anxiety, anger, sadness, and stealing our confidence. Indeed it’s the knocks we take in trying to reach our biggest goals that hurt the most – what sets apart those who flourish from those who fall comes in part down to emotional resilience.

Delegates will leave this Masterclass equipped with knowledge of how the brain and body responds to stress and able to use personal experience to explore stress triggers.

Sign up to this class today and give yourself the opportunity to build a personal resilience recipe to thrive through change.
