Sports Leaders Dance Leadership (SCQF Level 4 & 5)

Why this award?

Young people undertaking a qualification in Dance Leadership will learn and demonstrate important life skills such as effective communication and organisation whilst learning to lead a basic dance session/activities to younger people, their peers, older generations and within the community.

The courses involve both guided & peer-to-peer learning and supervised leadership to ensure that learners have all the skills they need to lead basic dance activities to other people.

Participants will learn and hone their skills in communication & leadership and boost their confidence to become more employable and help lead others. In doing so your organisation will benefit from creating a cohort of young leaders who can be role models for other students and improve your organisation’s standing in the local community.

We offer qualifications in Dance Leadership at SCQF Level 4 & 5 to ensure that your learners have a structured leadership pathway that helps them develop along the way.
