Community Sports Leadership - Level 2 at Wolverhampton Girls' High School

Course description

The Level 2 award in Community Sports Leadership is a qualification that will be very beneficial to you regardless of whether you have an interest in sport or not. The course aims to develop your leadership skills through the medium of sport. It will teach you how to organise and plan, how to motivate others, how to communicate effectively and how to work well in a team – skills that are all highly regarded by employers and higher education providers. At the end of the course you will receive a qualification that is recognised by employers for coaching and play scheme work.

This could be very useful if you are looking for some extra work experience or are interested in working in sports coaching or other leadership fields. This qualification is recognised at Level 2 on the Qualifications Credit Framework (QCF)

Key Points:

  • The course will be delivered on a Wednesday afternoon.
  • You will need to complete a fully recognised first aid course. This may be offered to you in school but you need to be prepared to organise your own course if required.
  • You will be expected to help out either in a PE lesson or at an extra-curricular club, which will contribute to various unit assessments.
  • Towards the end of the course you have to plan and carry out an ‘event’ for the school. In the past this has also doubled up as a charity fund raising event.

Once you have completed all of the elements in school, it is time to put the skills learnt into practice by undertaking a minimum of 10 hours voluntary leadership experience in the community. You cannot do this until all of the school based work has been delivered. It is preferred that you do this outside of school, and you have to organise this yourself. For example, as a group you could organise some extra-curricular activities in one of our local primary schools. You could also lead sessions within a sports organisation with which you are already a member of outside of school.

Entry requirements

Students (external and internal) wishing to join the Sixth Form at Wolverhampton Girls’ High School will usually be expected to have achieved a minimum of 6 GCSEs at grades A*- B, including Mathematics and English Language with a minimum average points score of 48 from her best 6 subjects.  Students should preferably have achieved A* or A in the subjects they wish to study at A Level, but with a minimum of grade B. Subjects which are not GCSEs but deemed to be equivalent to GCSEs are not accepted.  The Headteacher reserves the right to make the final decision on the application of this criteria.
