Our training programme
F4L has conducted significant research into the most critical issues facing individuals and communities, and has distilled this research into key themes, which are addressed by our core nine-‐part SETA-‐accredited curriculum (see modules tab for more detail). Interspersed amongst the classroom discussions are on the football field games and activities, bringing additional enthusiasm and interest to the programme.
We currently have 5 full-‐time coaches and 3 ambassadors, namely Doctor Theo Khumalo and Mark Williams. To date, the Wellness Coaches as they are known, have worked in over:
- 67 schools
- 34 football teams
- 22 workplace institutions
- 24 correctional facilities
- Worked with over 95,000 youths and adults
We do corporate training, football clinics and educational programmes in schools and tertiary institutions. We also conduct outreaches in correctional services where we have commenced an Assistant Coach peer education programme. This allows coaches to train either volunteers or selected individuals using the F4L Game Plan. Coaches also have the flexibility to train using other source material, for example they have used the Brothers For Life toolkit and the widely popular youth-‐orientated HIV campaign, Scrutinize.
All our training programmes are carefully assessed and monitoring and evaluation forms a strong part of our organization. Prior to training, participants complete a questionnaire that will later be compared to the post-‐training questionnaire to gauge efficacy of training and assess the facilitators themselves.
Given the dynamic nature of society, social issues constantly evolve and our additional modules reflect new thinking, concerns and solutions. We are also happy to tailor make modules for clients, if there is a specific matter that they believe needs thorough exploration with their organization, community, or target market.
