Level 2 Award in Community Sports Leadership at The Bishop's Stortford High School

Course description

The Level 2 Award in Community Sports Leadership 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 pupils the opportunity to work at local sports festivals, local clubs and primary schools within the area.

The course is broken down into eight units and the pupils 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 Community Sports Leader.

The qualification will take a minimum of 35 Guided Learning Hours.The final Unit 8 requires a minimum 10 hours of leadership to be completed by the candidate away from the centre; these hours are not included in the 35 Guided Learning Hours. Recognition for extra hours worked is provided through the Youth Sports Trust, Step into Sport Volunteer Passport Programme.

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.
