Go Lead

Go Lead (formerly Day Certificate in Sports Leadership) provides an ideal starting point for people from 16 years who have very little or no sports leadership knowledge. This training aims to provide a 7 hour training package and resource that will enable candidates to develop generic leadership skills and hopefully increase their confidence so they may assist with the delivery of simple sports activities for young people.

This programme is a practical course in which participants must demonstrate knowledge and understanding through physical competence rather than written work.

On completion participants will receive a Day Certificate in Sports Leadership awarded by Sports Leaders UK.

Young Leader Award

The Young Leader Award is a programme of leadership training for young people between the ages of 10 and 14 that supports them working with younger children, teaching leadership skills through a whole range of games and activities.

The award responds to the individual needs of each organisation and its young leaders through a flexible, differentiated programme. It focuses on specific skills such as instruction giving, organisation of people and equipment and the use of space. Rather than breaking leadership down into its constituent parts, the Award teaches these topics through a practical, activity based, holistic approach. In this way Young Leaders ‘learn by doing’ and by the end of the course will not only have the confidence and ability to lead others, but also have knowledge and experience of an extensive range of games and activities.

Benefits of the Young Leader Award:

  • Encourages young people to take responsibility and develop leadership skills

  • Develops skills such as organisation, communication, confidence and self-esteem alongside planning and self-review

  • Supports the work of adults within the organisation

  • Provides the opportunity for older children to work with younger children thus promoting integration and social inclusion

  • Reduces problems associated with bullying and inappropriate behaviour

  • Encourages co-operation and helps develop moral and social skills.

On completion participants will receive a Young Leader Award awarded by Sports Leaders UK.

Age Range:
10 to 14
