Leadership Skills Foundation Leadership Skills Programme (SCQF Level 5)

Why this award?

Following extensive research with head teachers across the UK and the success of our qualifications in sports leadership, we have introduced the Leadership Skills Programme - a formally recognised leadership qualification that can be delivered through maths, english & science.

The SCQF Level 5 qualifications is delivered over the course of 10 hours that compliments the national curriculum, learners learn to deliver basic sessions to younger students, gaining a nationally recognised qualification in the process. Our specially designed worksheets and resources will help students to learn invaluable leadership skills, improve personal & academic confidence and prepare for engaging in peer-to-peer learning. Organisations can register learners across all 3 subjects areas or focus on one or two where required.

Young people undertaking a qualification in Leadership skills will learn and demonstrate important life skills such as effective communication and organisation whilst learning to lead a basic subject based session/activities to younger people, their peers within a school or community setting.

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

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.
