primary young leaders
We believe that giving young people opportunities to volunteer at our events, supporting their peers by leading sessions and officiating, gives a unique opportunity to develop many transferable life skills which can enhance their experience within school, and open doors to further education and employment opportunities. Volunteering and developing as a young leader can support increased self-esteem, raised attainment, and an opportunity to gain a wide range of recognised qualifications.
Our primary leadership training programme introduces the concept of being a leader, and teaches young people the basic skills in leading others in sport and physical activity sessions. It is a great opportunity for young people to take be involved in sport and physical activity in a different way, supporting their piers to be active and to have fun back at their school.
When circumstances allow we run face-to-face training with groups of young leaders from different schools, training them on how to become Health & Wellbeing, Spirit of the Games or Media Leaders in their school.
We have developed a virtual training resource to be used during the Pandemic restrictions which school staff can deliver in-school to any number of year 5 & 6 pupils who they feel it would benefit.
