We have been running the Sports Leaders Awards at BSB since September 2014 and have been delighted with the work and involvement by so many students. Through sports leadership students develop self-confidence, organizational and leadership skills both individually and in groups. We believe that our students possess the qualities to become excellent leaders; these courses bring out such qualities.
The programme provides recognised qualifications that equip young people with the skills and motivation to create and run sporting activities in the community. Our community directly benefits from the skills that the students acquire. The courses help develop essential life skills such as organisation, motivation, communication and working with others - all of which enable sports leaders to inspire others to live more active and healthy lifestyles. The qualification is held in high regard by universities, colleges and employers and is offered to all our Year 11 and Year 12 students.
Level 1 Sports Leaders is undertaken by our Year 11 students during Physical Education lessons. The course provides time for the students to work closely with Primary School children and many of them have used newly acquired skills to assist in running Co-Curricular Activities after school and other sporting events.
Level 2 Community Sports Leaders is undertaken by our Year 12 students forming part of a wider enrichment programme. The students are required to lead 10 hours of Physical Education in the local community. We have formed strong links with a local Romanian school and our students run an after school activities programme for their pupils. This volunteering in our local community is a great opportunity for our students as they enhance their skills and develop personally.
Students are required to keep logbooks throughout the course, where they record leadership experience and reflect on various sections in the course. The course is mainly practical however written work and logbooks are submitted for assessment. Sessions are largely practical allowing students to develop a variety of skills including communication, behaviour management, health and fitness, allocating roles and responsibilities and learning how to plan and structure sporting sessions.For more information visit the Sports Leaders UK webpage: www.sportsleaders.org
