What is Talent?

Gain further insight and share knowledge with other coaches working in similar talent settings

This is the first of four workshops in the Talent Foundation Series and is for high-performing coaches with an interest in talent development, working, or having a desire to work, with emerging athletes within the England Talent Pathway.

You will explore the definition, understanding and latest research associated with talent in sport, discussing the implications for you and your athletes/players with coaches from other sports. 

Because the nature of talent development is so varied, your workshop experience will be very much focused on what you and the rest of the group want to get out of that particular workshop, meaning you get a highly relevant, personalised experience.

You will:

  • share current academic research regarding giftedness and talent, and be challenged to apply it to your own contexts
  •  explore the concepts of nature versus nurture, the interaction of biological, psychological and social factors, and the links to mindset
  •  be checked and challenged to reflect on the talent systems you work within, and share your experiences with coaches from other sports
  • be provided with content essential for the seamless progression from UKCC Level 2 to UKCC Level 3 or equivalent.

What People Think

We ran the Talent Foundation Series of workshops for a group of our coaches, and it was a really positive experience. The coaches benefited greatly, in particular from the ability of the tutor to relate discussions to the environment they were working in. We look forward to running more of the workshops in the future.
