The English Institute of Sport (EIS) is looking for the next generation of support staff to join the team that has helped to develop a wealth of European, Commonwealth, World, Olympic and Paralympic medallists since 2002.

The EIS’s hugely successful 3 day immersive residential course, ‘Skills4Performance’, will be returning in early 2017 to help with this search.

Skills4Performance aims to provide an insight into the elite sport environment and seek out talented individuals looking to develop their careers in high performance sport. Across 3 days, Skills4Performance will offer unique workshops and inspiring speakers that aim to give attendees a better understanding of what is required in high performance sport. The course will be held from 6th-8th January 2017 at the Lilleshall high performance centre. Highlights will include:

  • Engaging with EIS heads of service and their technical teams for a 3-day full-time residential course at an EIS centre.
  • 8 discipline routes on offer. Choose from: psychology, physiology, physiotherapy, strength and conditioning, performance lifestyle, sports nutrition, performance analysis and biomechanics.
  • Training in specific practical and personal skills, essential for working in high performance sport.
  • The chance to learn about the high performance system from top speakers, which in the past have included Olympic champions, Performance Directors and leading coaches.

Please note applications for this course have now closed, however the EIS intends to run further courses annually subject to funding.
