Young people undertaking a qualification in Sports Leadership will learn and demonstrate important life skills such as effective communication and organisation whilst learning to lead basic physical activities to younger people, their peers, older generations and within the community.
The sessions use sport to educate young people on how to deliver fun and engaging physical activities with other students and within the community. Students will plan, lead and evaluate sports/physical activity sessions over a number of tutored hours and then demonstrate their leadership skills as part of their assessment.
The Sports Leadership qualifications are aimed at anyone wishing to develop their leadership skills, using sport and physical activity as the method of engagement and delivery. They can be delivered in a variety of settings - youth work, schools, sports clubs, community groups - or could accompany the delivery of some of the other awards offered by Awards Network members e.g. Duke of Edinburgh’s Award
There are no entry requirements, upper age limits or restrictions on who can complete a Sports Leadership Qualification (please see table below for minimum age requirements)
The length of time taken to deliver any of the Qualifications is dependent on the level of course chosen. You can deliver any of the qualifications in a variety of ways to suit your programme: over several days, part of a specific programme or weekly sessions.
Learners must also complete a number of voluntary hours to demonstrate their learning within their school or community.
