Female Mentoring Programme Launches For Future Coaches
Newcastle United Foundation has appointed three female coaches as part of its Female Coach Mentoring programme, which is supported by Sport Newcastle.
Codie Nichols and Anastacia Chambers, who study at Tyne Met College, and Kayleigh Appleton, who studies at Northumbria University all applied to be part of the project and have been successfully appointed.
Starting in January 2016, they will each deliver 18 hours coaching, working with Foundation coaches on various programmes, over the next 4 months.
The Foundation will support the coaches with additional qualifications to further assist their development with the aim of creating a pathway that will help identify future female coaching staff for the organisation.
Codie Nichols said: “I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the Female Mentoring Programme for Newcastle United Foundation. I have always aspired to apply my passions of football to the development side of the sport, particularly for young women as I feel this is an area of strong focus in today’s society. I see myself being an integral part of the Foundation as a full time coach in the future, and this programme will allow me to get to where I want to be.”
Senior Project Co-ordinator at Newcastle United Foundation, Lisa Bell, added: “This is a fantastic opportunity for Codie, Kayleigh and Anastacia to use the knowledge of the Foundation coaches to enhance their own learning and development. We were so impressed by the calibre of their applications and we can’t wait for them to start – we think they will be really valuable additions to our team!”
