WHY YOUNG LEADERS?
Many young people develop a passion for dance at a young age, but there is a significant drop off in participation at secondary school and in community engagement – either due to other commitments, finance or provision within schools and community organisations. Sports Leaders UK’s Dance Leadership qualifications give students the chance to rediscover their passion for dance whilst also gaining life-changing skills, experiences and nationally recognised qualifications.
Dance Leaders can also become advocates for leadership and help engage their peers and younger students. They will also have the skills necessary to help run Dance clubs throughout your school to help others become more physically active and engaged.
Sports Leaders UK have created over 1 million leaders through our qualifications; this is what they had to say:
• 98% improved their communication skills
• 96% learnt to work in a team
• 94% believed they were more employable
• 78% said it helped get their first job
• 87% inspired to get more people engaged
• 83% wanted to do more in the community
By introducing Sports Leaders UK’s Dance Leadership Qualifications, you can benefit in several ways, including:
• A platform for learners to develop invaluable leadership skills
• Raise confidence and attainment amongst students
• Reduce physical inactivity (particularly amongst girls)
• Create positive role models for younger students
• Create leaders who can contribute to school or community productions and work with primary aged children
• Improve student and participant recruitment by offering a wider range of extra-curricular activities
