Enhancement Option – Sports Leadership Level 3 Qualification
Subject Leader: Mr P J Harris
Board: Sports Leaders UK
The Level 3 qualification is a nationally recognised qualification that enables successful candidates to independently lead small groups of people in sport and recreational activities. The qualification teaches generic leadership skills such as organisation, planning, communication and teamwork through the medium of sport. It is a fun and practical qualification, which provides the students the opportunity to work at local sports festivals, local clubs and primary schools within the area.
The course is broken down into six units and students are assessed throughout the programme. This is to ensure they receive the required support to achieve success and to confirm that they have the required commitment to become a Sports Leader.
The qualification will take a minimum of 126 Guided Learning Hours.
The final qualification requires a minimum 30 hours of leadership to be completed by the candidate away from the centre.
This course will suit students with an interest in sports participation but more importantly those who enjoy working with younger children and/or have ambitions to extend their coaching, teaching and leadership skills through higher education. The skills that are developed are applicable throughout all walks of life as this course will improve communication skills, interpersonal skills, organisation and leadership all of which are sought after skills in the business world.
