Education Through CashBack (ETC) is a slightly different Scottish Sports Futures programme that works to promote best practice in the education through sport approach with coaches and youth workers.
Through bespoke training modules, ETC aims to enhance staff skills and understanding around the engagement and development of young people through sport. The programme is delivered through eight training modules with complimentary online resources accessible to staff beyond their training days. A hybrid youth work and coaching approach is encouraged through ETC, enabling workers from across the CashBack family to maximise their reach and impact in Scotland’s communities. The content of these training modules has been compiled by Scottish Sports Futures in partnership with Youth Scotland and in consultation with Amateur Boxing Scotland, basketballscotland, Scottish Football Association and Scottish Rugby Union. The sessions have been designed to provide a mix of theory and practical exercises with a view to making the training as transferable as possible. Experts from each sport are involved with the delivery to ensure relevance.ETC training sessions are delivered across Scotland’s 32 local authorities.
