Designed to provide guidance to a broad number of Athletes, the Outreach programme offers in-person group sessions with a very dynamic and hands-on approach. These workshops are used as the first step to create awareness and education about their future transition to life after sport and are typically delivered by members of a local Athletes’ Commission, Olympians and/or Adecco managers. The content of the workshops is focused on the areas of education, life skills and employment.
An Outreach workshop comprises a series of 6-8 modules that can take place in one day or over a series of days depending on the time available. The module length typically ranges from 1 hour to 2.5 hours. The workshops are progressive in their sequence beginning with a module on self-discovery and goal setting with more practical modules focusing on CV building, networking, dual career and interview skills among others.
