Training

The Jason Roberts Foundation is committed not only to delivering our own projects and programmes across the UK and Grenada, but also in supporting other organisations in the sports and youth development sectors that share our ethos through training and development.
In response to demand from local partners, including youth groups and community football clubs, and at the request of trustees the Foundation has worked with accrediting agencies to develop a curriculum design to embed equality and diversity awareness and practice into local sports and youth work delivery at all levels.
The Jason Roberts Foundation Curriculum was designed and developed in 2014, and piloted in London and Northern Ireland to ensure fitness for purpose across a range of cultural settings, with a formal roll out across partners from 2015.

Level 1

JRF level one accreditation is focused on the learning needs of young people aged 14+, whether as programme participants or volunteers, and has the following learning outcomes.

  • Recognising diversity within your local community
  • Understanding other cultures within your community
  • Celebrating diversity in the community
  • Level 2

    JRF level two accreditation is focused on developing peer mentors, volunteers, coaches and frontline youth workers as role models for equality, diversity and respect in both their working environment and the wider community. This qualification can act as a progression from the level one qualification, or as a stand-alone qualification to complement vocational coaching qualifications.

  • Understanding equality and diversity in the workplace.
  • Challenging language and behaviours.
  • Embedding best practice in the workplace.
  • Being a role model.
