This is a course designed to give students the skills needed to lead groups in safe sporting and recreational activity

The Level 2 Award in Sports Leadership is an ideal step towards achieving national governing body coaching qualifications and promotes the work of volunteers in sport. This award will provide a valuable insight into many careers within the field of sport and recreation as well as developing leadership skills. If your chosen career demands leadership qualities this award is the ideal way to further understanding in this area. Exceptional students will also be given the opportunity to extend their skills by undertaking the Level 3 Award in Sports Leadership (HSLA) and the Millennium Volunteers programme. All these certificates will assist entry into further education institutions and with applications to Camp America.

This award complements A level studies as there is minimal written input and no formal written exam. Leadership ability, attendance and ten hours voluntary service are the key areas of assessment. This award does not require specific ability in any one sport but aims to develop confidence in students taking responsibility for small groups. The course comprises eight units:

    • Organisational Skills
    • Safety in Sport
    • Know your Friends
    • Fitness for Sport
    • Leagues and Competitions
    • Improvisation of Activities
    • Games and activity Experience
    • Ten Hours Voluntary Leadership Experience

The award is further supplemented by a placement in our feeder primary schools.
