Sports Leaders UK's Story

Sports Leaders UK is an Awarding Organisation that creates leadership skills for life. Our vocational awards and qualifications aim to equip young people with employability skills by improving motivation, self-esteem, communication, organisation, team work and confidence. Leadership and volunteering is a vital part of all of our courses and allows young people to practice and build their skills in order to ‘Give More and Become More’, thus improving their employability and CV’s.

Through awards and qualifications, we create a fun and dynamic focus, with essential health, employment and social benefits.
