Student Development & Education Training (DET)

What is it?

HFI want to enhance the quality of students lives by educating and motivating them to be in control of their own health, fitness and nutritional needs. HFI has a focus to assist/ educate everyone to reach their own specific goal. That goal maybe to lose/ gain weight, to mentally feel better, or to excel in a sport through development.

We are very aware that there are 3 types of student, the first student that participates in no sport/ activity, the second student that seldom participates but with a little encouragement will take part and can be quite good and enjoy it, the third student participates in as many sports/ activities as their schedule will allow. With this in mind we have carefully designed services that will impact all students, and also assist teachers in guiding the student in health related issues.

At HFI we pride ourselves that all our staff are minimum degree qualified, with some members qualified to a masters degree level.

The objectives of Health and Fitness Irelands schools education program is to to help all staff in the following areas;  health (physical and mental), fitness levels, nutrition/ hydration strategies and exercise options.

We recognise the 3 different types of staff that exist – the sporty competitive type that loves sport and plays team or individual sport (type 1), the staff that likes sport but seldom exercises (type 2) and the staff that has little or no interest in physical activity (type 3).

We are aware of the importance of physical activity for all staff and its close links to self-awareness, self-confidence and mental health in general.
