Join the team
As a licensed provider, you and / or your team could help to deliver fundamental movement skills in both schools and the local community, throughout the year.
(Our England Athletics' affiliated member clubs will have an option to acquire community licences also.)
You could join the funetics delivery team via a number of licence options:
- Schools licence
- Community licence
- 'Direct delivery' - working as a Lead Coach for England Athletics
We have a number of licences already agreed and these providers are already in direct talks with schools and community groups.
Marketing support will be provided to you (to run in addition to your own marketing) help you market:
- to schools for curriculum time sessions
- to parents for breakfast and after-school clubs in your licence agreement area.
Marketing directly to parents will commence once you have your licence and you have the delivery / sessions created. Marketing by yourself and supported by funetics will be regional initially until national presence is secure; with the exception of our 'event' campaigns:
- The funetics Home School Pack
