Coach Education

Our Sports Development Team run a wide and varied education programme through out the year, in conjunction with the County Sports Partnership ‘Sport Across Staffordshire & Stoke on Trent’

The Sports Development team, organise Coach Education courses and workshops for young sports coaches. For those looking to take the first step onto the coaching ladders we run the Level 1 and Level 2 Award in Community Sports Leadership.

Level 1 Award in Sports Leadership

The Level 1 Award in Sports Leadership provides the ideal starting point for learners aged 13 years and over who wish to develop their leadership skills, whilst under the direct supervision of their tutor/assessor or other suitably qualified adult.

The syllabus is designed to develop generic leadership skills that can be applied to a variety of sports and/or recreational situations as well as contributing to the personal development of the learner.

The Level 1 Award in Sports Leadership is a practical qualification in which learners must demonstrate their ability to lead others in simple sport/activity.

Level 2 Award in Community Sports Leadership

The Level 2 Award in Community Sports Leadership is a nationally recognised qualification that enables successful learners to lead groups of people in sport/activity, under indirect supervision.

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 with no entrance requirements or final examinations to sit. Age 16+

Both the CSLA courses can help you:

  • Gain Employment
  • Enhance you CV
  • Gain a place in higher or further education
  • Increase your confidence levels
  • Develop your leadership skills

We also encourage young sports coaches to become involved as volunteers on our sports programmes to gain experience in the delivering, planning and organising of coaching sessions.
