Level 2 Award in Community Sports Leadership at Aylesbury High School

Course description


The CSL provides many opportunities for learning and development. As a vocationally-related qualification (VRQ), it focuses on the application of knowledge, rather than the accumulation of knowledge.

Candidates will benefit from:

• learning to lead others

• increased confidence in leading groups

• enhanced self-esteem

• improved communication skills

• improved organisational skills

• experience of working as part of a team

• work experience – delivering sports sessions in the community

• further education or training opportunities in sport

• a nationally recognised qualification at Level 2.

Students have the opportunity to work with local primary schools and a school for children with severe learning difficulties.

If you are taking AS Level PE, then CSL can count toward leading in a specific sport (one of your practical activities).
