Skills 4 Performance is BACK for 2019!

The English Institute of Sport is looking for the next generation of performance support staff to join the team that supported 93% of medal-winning athletes at the 2016 Rio Olympics. The EIS’s hugely successful ‘Skills4Performance’, will be returning in June 2019 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. Skills4Performance will offer unique workshops and inspiring speakers that aim to give attendees a better understanding of what is required to work in high performance sport. The course will be held on the 29thJune 2019 at the Lilleshall National Sports Centre. Highlights will include:

  • Engaging with EIS heads of service and their technical teams for a 1-day course at an EIS centre.
  • 8 discipline routes on offer. Choose from: biomechanics, performance analysis, performance lifestyle, performance nutrition, performance psychology, physiology, physiotherapy, and strength and conditioning.
  • 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 
  • Training in specific practical and personal skills, essential for working in high performance sport.

Do you want to learn more about working in the elite sport environment? Do you want to see what it is like to be part of the team behind the team? Have you got what it takes to be a high-performing practitioner in elite sport?

If yes, please submit the following via the online application system:

  1. CV 
  2. In no more than 500 words, in a word document or PDF, please articulate what you understand about Performance Lifestyle and where it sits in today’s elite sport environment. In addition, please outline what is it that makes you believe this is the right career path for you.  


Please note – the emphasis of this day on 29thJune is multi-disciplinary working, although there will be an “Intro to PL” session provided. A specific insight day in to the Performance Lifestyle discipline will be offered later in 2019. 

Please note there will be a cost of £50 per successful applicant. 

If you would like any further information or if you have any questions, please email skills4performance@eis2win.co.uk
