Come And Join Us!
Our bespoke courses are designed to help young people build the skills and confidence to lead their teams on and off the field. These courses are perfect for those who already lead and those aspiring to do so. With a mixture of practical activity, discussion and self-reflection, you'll come away with lots of ideas to support you and your teams.
These courses are exclusively for those in Year 11 +
We'll theme these courses around leading in sport, even though we know the lessons here have a far greater reach. Sport is a great mechanism to have poignant conversations with young people, as they have lots of relevant experiences to map against the concepts we talk about, as well as an environment to test out their new skills after the course.
We use practical experiences to test our new-found skills. With plenty of time to try out different styles of leading, we can find out the benefits and pitfalls of each style, alongside which sits most comfortably for each person. After each exercise, we build in lots of time to review, to ensure we take the maximum amount of learning out of each exercise.
In this course, we explore. As we are all different, our aim is to help everyone explore how they work, and how this can affect those around them.
Here's What We Might Cover:
