Sport Training Facilitator

Closing Date: 13 October 2021

Category: Education & Training

This assignment is a 6 month part-time E Volunteering opportunity working from home. The assignment will be working with the National Sports Council (NSC) a government initiative which supports athletes, coaches and sports at an international level in the Solomon Islands. NSC's purpose is to grow people through sport; develop people holistically to be successful in sport and life; and support the preparations for the Solomon Islands 2023 Pacific Games - which will be the largest sporting evening in Solomon history. 

Do you enjoy helping others learn new skills, knowledge and ultimately enhance the learning opportunities? This training & development role within a sport context will support a sport education team to deliver a variety of workshops, seminars, short courses, certified and accredited programs across different strands of specialities.

There is currently no sport training and education programme for the development of a sport workforce in the Solomon Islands so the focus of this role is to mentor and build local capacity through sharing the knowledge, skills and expertise. You will be working to build capacity and competency of locally identified trainers to continue the future sustainability of the program.

We are looking for a volunteer with the following skills:
  • A relevant qualification in Adult Learning or Education
  • At least 3 years experience in the delivery of competency-based learning programs preferably in sports or health
  • Experience working within a vocational training environment
  • Experience in developing learning resources and assessment tools
  • Able to work from home and utilise appropriate technology to engage with our partner organisation
