You’ve reached the end of week 2, well done!

Week 2 covered quite a few concepts, so let’s take a moment to reflect on the progress made – you’re already half-way through the course.

What we’ve covered this week:

  • What sport policy is and who it is for
  • Key components of good policy
  • Global frameworks and policy coherence
  • Developing an inclusive mindset
  • Developing a situation analysis

You’ve also learned how policymakers around the world are using sport to effect change.

Getting into the habit of regularly reflecting on your theory of change as you gain insights through this course is really important.

Remember to keep a record of any changes you make to your approach along the way – you might be surprised at how far you’ve come already!

Over the next few weeks, we will build on these foundations to introduce:

  • Week 3 – programme design, and monitoring and evaluating impact
  • Week 4 – bringing people along with you to make lasting change

Next up? Creating change through effective programme design.
