Who is taking part?

There will be a number of different coaches, providers and organisations taking part on both days. Each person will be looking at the content and seeing how this fits in their area, whether that be delivering in schools, in clubs or in the wider community. However, the common theme is that everyone that is taking part will be either delivering a local funetics programme or helping to coordinate one.

What do I need to bring on the day?

Please ensure you are able to take part in a quiet room (if that is possible for those with small children or pets…).

There will be also be a short break for lunch / dinner.

It will be handy to have a pen and paper ready to help with the smaller breakout sessions also and obviously ensure you are well hydrated throughout.
