Sports Leaders UK Information Session, Thursday 2nd August 2012, 10.00am – 12.00pm

Wesley Buildings, Wesley Street, Redruth, TR15 2EG

Jonathan Coleman, the South West Regional Foundation Manager for Sports Leaders UK, is delivering an information session for anyone who may currently be delivering Sports Leaders UK qualifications or who may be interested in delivering the qualifications in the future and would like to find out more.

Sports Leaders UK is an independent charity that works through over 3500 accredited delivery centres around the UK.  They provide nationally recognised leadership awards and qualifications.  All of the awards and qualifications are practical – learners learn by doing rather than through written work and assessment is made upon a learner’s ability to lead and demonstrate their leadership skills for a certain period of time, within a specific setting.  Learners don’t need to be sports stars or prima ballerinas – instead an interest in their chosen activity, a positive attitude and a willingness to volunteer are all that is required.  For many young people, a leadership role gives them recognition, a sense of self-worth and empowerment not otherwise available to them. For more information about Sports Leaders UK and the awards and qualifications on offer visit http://www.sportsleaders.org
