Sports Leader UK, Young Leader Award
YISP along with NewkesUK Ltd have secured funding from the Cumbria Community Foundation for delivery of the Sports Leader UK, Young Leader Award to 50 young people aged between 9 and 13 years.
The Young Leader Award is a programme of leadership training for young people between the ages of 9 and 13 that promotes working with younger children, teaching leadership skills through a range of games and activities. The Young Leader Award teaches key skills such as leadership, team-building, peer-mentoring as well as meeting most of the ECM criteria. Through sport, young people can develop a lot of life-skills whilst gaining confidence in a familiar environment.
The course takes approx 6 hours to complete and participants will receive a certificate from Sports Leader UK.
This one day course will take place during February half term and will run on Monday 21st Feb – Wednesday 23rd Feb 2011 at 9am-4pm at NewkesUK Ltd based on 2-6 Derry Street, Barrow In Furness, tel 01229 813989 by Phil Newton, NewkesUK Ltd, Managing Director. Also see their website: www/newkesuk.com. Spaces will be reserved on a first come first serve basis. Participants will ‘learn by doing’ and by the end of the course will not only have the confidence and ability to lead others but will also have knowledge and experience of an extensive range of games and activities.
