FIM-Academy: Coach for Inclusion, Health and Peace (September 09-11, 2020)
Together with the University of Liechtenstein (UniLi), we are organising an extraordinary seminar and providing further training as a “Coach for inclusion, health and peace” within the framework of development cooperation in Liechtenstein. For this purpose we use the know-how of our partner organisations and associations as well as the Special Advisor. Unfortunately, due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, only students have a number of places available in this extraordinary course. Unfortunately, external persons cannot participate in the Academy this year.
Participants will receive intensive training in theory and practice (block) and will go through a distance learning phase with e-learning. The course consists of three taught module parts. These are introduced in seminars/exercises by teachers, deepened through e-learning and, if possible, tested in practical exercises on site.
Module 1: The basis of philanthropy and possible fields of reference to (football) sport
Module 2: Fundamentals of Development Cooperation
Module 3: General motoric and football specific training (incl. trainer behaviour)
