- Leadership opportunities
Our Sixth Form Sports Leaders are currently working towards their Level 2 Qualification in Community Sport Leadership (CSL2).
These SLQ qualifications develop leadership and life skills in young people that boost confidence, aid attainment and develop employability skills. Students take part in four P.R.E.P. learning principles:
- Practically applied-learning
- Recognised learning
- Experience through volunteering
- Peer-to-Peer delivery
We know that these awards and qualifications equip our young people with employability skills for life improving motivation, self-esteem, communication, team work and confidence.
Leadership volunteering is a vital part of all our courses allowing young people to practice and build their skills to help them in employment and education.
We were delighted to be involved in a Tower Hamlets’ initiative when our Sixth Form Sport Leaders led and organised an Athletics Tournament for Year 5 pupils – here’s some photographic evidence of our young people in action.
Nimu Islam had this to say about his leadership experience and being part of the student ambassador team:
“I enjoy speaking in front of large audiences and being a positive role model around the school. I know that the work I am doing will stand me in good stead on my personal statement and when I attend university interviews. I have learnt brand new skills and one of my highlights has been working on exciting DIY initiatives in the sixth form area with my peers.”
